Welcome to Chaigeley School

Chaigeley School is committed to safeguard and promote the welfare of children

Chaigeley School has been helping pupils with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties since 1946, when it was established by the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) to help children traumatised during the bombings of the Second World War. Chaigeley provides quality individualised provision for boys and girls aged 8 to 16 through both day and residential education and care.

Chaigeley School takes pride in ‘realising the potential’ of all its pupils and provides an individualised curriculum solution for young people along with an integrated therapeutic intervention approach, that aims to focus on the whole self and results in excellent outcomes for all our pupils.

In recent years the growing complexity of SEMH has led Chaigeley to develop strategies to address the associated and complex needs of our pupils. This has included and increased skill set for dealing with Autism, Dyslexia and a range of adolescent mental health issues. This means Chaigeley is best placed to provide skilled and specialist education and care for a full range of complex needs.

Chaigeley School is a non maintained charitable trust led by the Chaigeley Education Foundation. It is a single site organisation, who invests consistently in the development of pupils and staff, using all funds for this aim. You can, at all times be assured that all funds are going towards improving the life chances of young people.

As in 1946, Chaigeley continues to care for pupils in crisis with its main asset being the staff group who are dedicated and sensitive to the needs of our pupils and determined to make a difference as “every child matters”.

We are very proud of our pupils and school and I would be happy to provide a tour of the school if you are interested in seeing what we do to help young people ‘realise their potential ‘ Jan Barlow – School Principal


Chaigeley School values the diversity and equal opportunity of every young person and member of staff.
