Both our children started at Chatsworth in March 2017, and they love going to school every day. They’re encouraged to research, investigate and experiment in their learning. Reading, writing and maths are embedded into their units of enquiry as well as standalone lessons. Their love of reading has increased since starting at the school – DEAR ( Drop Everything and Read) time is Toby’s absolute favourite. If you go into school at DEAR time, you’ll see everyone deep in a book! The open-door policy enables parents to visit the school at any time and help out in class. There’s also an excellent range of CCAS and ECAS offered, from sport and science to performing arts and coding, plus everything in between.
We started with an internet search in preparation for our exploratory visit. After thorough research, we decided on an IB curriculum because we liked the ethos and wanted a curriculum that is easily transferable if we were to move in the future. During our first visit, it was clear to see that Chatsworth was different; there was a family-friendly and supportive atmosphere, and I felt an immediate emotional connection.
Chatsworth is smaller than other international schools and has a community feel. It’s a truly international school with families from all over the world. The school mission to develop internationally minded and caring global citizens is clear in its events, trips and learning activities that my sons are privileged to participate in.
