Headteacher's Welcome

As Headteacher, my mission is to drive improvements in every aspect of school life, and to continue to raise standards. I want Chepstow School to be the first choice for every parent when considering the next school in their child’s education and I am excited to begin this very important role and rewarding journey with you and your family.

I believe that the foundations of an outstanding school are based on the values of honesty, integrity, loyalty, accountability, and fairness of actions. We begin the next chapter of educational change in Wales and our commitment is to develop ethical, confident, ambitious and creative learners, who will make a significant difference when they leave Chepstow School, to fulfil their dreams and goals.

At Chepstow School, our ambition is to develop the school into a valuable learning organisation where we commit to deliver high-quality teaching experiences, wellbeing, and promote independent learning. As a caring and committed school, we challenge learners to be proud of what they achieve, and equally challenge staff to develop their own professional practice, to display a passion for the classroom, and lifelong learning experiences.

Our curriculum will underpin our ethos of creativity, produce capable and confident young people and citizens where innovation and mastering of the basics; reading, writing, communicating, mathematics and digital competency are key. We will prepare each and every student to succeed and be prepared for an ever changing workplace, equipped with the skills and competencies to succeed for life.

To uphold our vision, our aim is to promote that everyone associated with Chepstow School shares the inspiration, passion and belief that we can achieve and develop brilliant learners, just as our school motto states; “Inspiring Learning”.

We remain true to our values; we aim to create an open culture, raise expectations, recognise and celebrate success, of which there are many, and set clear boundaries.

We are committed to working with you, your family and community and aspire to be an outstanding school in every way.
