Message from the Headteacher
Chertsey High School is a place where the individual matters. First and foremost, we are a family - a 'people place'. We are committed to the personal development of our pupils in the fullest sense. Students are encouraged to work hard towards academic success and we are proud of the results which they achieve, but just as important is the development of their characters: their confidence and values, their creative and physical skills and their appreciation of who they are and what they can contribute to the world.
Our Values of Knowledge, Determination and Love underpin all we do as a school. They are rooted in our Christian ethos and go a long way to prepare our students for life's challenges and the responsibilities of adulthood. Our aim is to equip our Chertsey students with the strongest possible foundations for their future.
We know that young people today face many challenges, not least of which is their mental health and wellbeing. We are strongly committed to providing the best pupil welfare individually tailored for each person, and this has been recognised by the Carneige Centre of Excellence when they awarded the school with the prestigious Gold Award for Mental Health.
We provide all the other things a good school should: challenging academic curriculum, plenty of sport and co-curricular opportunities, and the highest expectations in which students can be challenged to reach their full potential.
The only way to experience the authentic CHS family is to visit us and meet our students. We are delighted to welcome visitors throughout the academic year and encourage you to contact us and make an appointment.
