Chailey is a thriving, successful school set in rural Sussex, just north of Lewes, and within easy reach of Brighton and Haywards Heath. We are proud of our traditional values and innovative approaches to Teaching and Learning. Staff are friendly, dedicated and supportive and our students are happy and proud to be part of the school. Chailey is a school where teachers and students can thrive.Visitors to Chailey School often comment on the calm teaching environment and fantastic relationships between students and teachers. We had our last Ofsted visit in January 2017 which we were very pleased with.

The Ofsted report contained comments such as:

  • ‘an established culture and ethos of the school, which is enhanced by the strong relationships between staff and pupils’
  • ‘pupils make good, and sometimes better, progress’
  • ‘pupils appreciate what staff do for them and, therefore, their conduct is typically exemplary, both in lessons and around the school’
  • We believe that this is a very strong foundation from which to aspire to excellence in everything we do.
