PREP

Independent preparatory schools do not have to follow the National Curriculum or submit test results to the Department for Education so there is no individual school performance data or star rating.

Visit the school's website to learn more about their unique curriculum, policies on testing and common leaver destinations (a good indicator of pupil progress). See our About page for information on Choosing A Prep School.

School Description

Chartfield School was last inspected in March 2014. Since the previous inspection, the number of full-time pupils attending Chartfield School has risen from 40 to 67. The school serves a largely coastal community, with the vast majority of pupils living in the locality. The school’s ethos is ‘every child matters’, where ‘no child is left behind’. There are no pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities, or who are disadvantaged. The school does not make use of alternative provision.
