School Description

The current headteacher is an acting headteacher and he was appointed in September 2019. Prior to this, he was the deputy headteacher in the school. The structure of leadership in the primary school changed this academic year. New subject leaders have been appointed to lead subject areas. Since the previous inspection, a new chair of governors has been appointed. The sixth-form provision closed in 2017. The school became a member of the Furness Education Consortium in September 2019. This is a group of seven schools in the local area that work to improve educational provision for pupils. The school currently uses alternative provision at Cowran Estate to contribute to the education of a small number of pupils.

Pupil heat map key

01228 221582

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the last School Census (released annually in July).

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the last School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.

Chetwynde School Reviews

Average Rating:


“My children love going to school”
"> Both of my children love this school. I have 2 children attending the Primary school and they both love going and every year they think that their current teacher is the best teacher in the world. Both have fantastic friendship groups and are constantly encouraged academically to achieve their best. There is also a great sense of being part of the Chetwynde family, where all parents want the best for the whole school and support it wherever possible. I'm so glad that we got our places; it's a brilliant thriving school which I'm sure your children would love as much we do.
“More than a school”
"> Excellent school. My son has attended Chetwynde since he was 3 years old, he has just completed his A levels and is awaiting results having achieved 13 GCSEs 2 years ago 11 A/A* and 2 B's. We are obviously delighted with the academic side of the school. The teachers are amazing – always willing to go the extra mile to support the children – but it's more than that: it's a family. It may not have brand new windows and spotless paint work, and sometimes letters may go astray en route home but I for one have never prioritised things like this. A happy, confident and well-educated child has always been at the top of my list. So if this sounds like you, then Chetwynde is definitely the school for your child.
