Chandlings Parent Survey




"Welcoming, caring, inspiring and rounded..."

what parents value about a Chandlings education

From quality of teaching to opportunities for outdoor learning, relationships between pupils and staff and pupil wellbeing, a recent independent survey by RSAcademics reveals exceptionally high levels of parental satisfaction across Chandlings . 


During the autumn term of 2019, RSAcademics carried out a survey of parents’ views of Chandlings. The survey was administered and analysed independently  to ensure that all responses remained confidential and anonymous. The results were also benchmarked against 73 other Prep and Junior schools.  Chandlings exceeded all of the key benchmarks.

  • 85% of parents are satisfied (completely or very) with the school.
  • Almost all parents (94%) would recommend Chandlings to others, which places us in the top 3 of all schools benchmarked.
  • 95% of parents said that Chandlings met or exceeded their expectations.

RSAcademics commented that:

"Chandlings is highly valued by its parents, who appreciate the School's warm atmosphere, nurturing approach and outdoor environment, as well as the rounded education and opportunities on offer."

Parents rated 39 different school features which were grouped into six categories, in all of these categories Chandlings scored above the benchmark group with at least 75% of parents rating 37 of the 39 features as either ‘good’ or ‘very good’.  In the Academic and Pastoral groups Chandlings significantly exceeded the benchmark. The individual features rated particularly strongly included: 

  • Sport and Provision of extra-curricular activities
  • Behaviour and friendliness of pupils
  • Quality of teaching and teachers relations with pupils
  • Care for the pupils' wellbeing and individuality
