Aims and Ethos
At Chandlings we foster self-belief, promote curiosity and build resilience. Our children are inspired to be resourceful, adaptable and creative, in an environment where we balance opportunity with wellbeing. They are given the time and space to be children, within a community that celebrates diversity and individuality.
Our approach combines a rigorous academic programme with outstanding pastoral care and support. Our children are truly special young people who display confidence, compassion and creativity, coupled with an excellent academic and social grounding.
"Children learn how to be respectful and at the same time be confident and empowered." Parent
