Welcome to Chellaston Academy


I am privileged to be the Headteacher of Chellaston
Academy because the students here achieve great results
and the attainment is very strong. Our students work very
well with committed teachers who have long experience
and expertise in their subjects.

We have one of the largest School Sixth Forms in the area
because we not only retain the majority of our students
from Year 11, but we are also very enthusiastic about
recruiting students from other schools as we believe that a
mixed Sixth Form provides a rich environment in which all
of our students can thrive.
You are in the process of making a difficult choice from a range of alternatives. I expect all Year
11 students to make that choice in an informed manner and to explore the various possibilities
open to you. You should not only read this Prospectus carefully but you should also visit other
providers so that you can judge the atmosphere and the ethos for yourselves.
We have good facilities for all subjects and we are very proud of the progress made by the vast
majority of our students. We have performed very strongly on all comparison benchmarking
data but we are most pleased that the National A.L.P.S. (A Level Performance System) rank us so
highly on Value Added.
The emphasis on academic attainment across the school continues even more strongly into our
Sixth Form. We believe that achieving qualifications is the major priority for our Sixth Formers
and we are delighted when so many start University Courses across the Country and abroad. We
not only establish pathways to University but we also have many A Level students who leave
us for apprenticeships and employment with training. The range and breadth of courses and
opportunities increases every year. We are immensely proud of this achievement.
We not only have high academic expectations of our students. We also expect our sixth formers
to be ambassadors for the school and to establish a social life which they will remember in the
future. We expect our sixth formers to work together and to work with other students lower
down the school.
We want our Sixth Form to be a preparation for a successful life.
