Welcome to Chaigeley School

Ethos & Vision

Chaigeley School offers a flexible approach to meeting the needs of young people who experience Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs. We are a ‘specialist’ environment for young people who find effective communication for many different reasons, more challenging than most.

“Providing, promoting and safeguarding excellent care and education, enabling everyone to realise their true potential.”

This specialism holds its foundation in the belief that all behaviour and reaction is a form of communication and a belief that all young people have unlimited potential and want to be happy, independent and respected members of society. Chaigeley aims to prepare young people for modern life through the education of both the mind and heart, we provide a nurturing and therapeutic environment in order to help our young people communicate their needs in a productive and safe way, have the confidence to achieve their life goals and benefit from a position of choice.
