Description of the school – Chatham House Grammar School

The school is smaller than average, with almost one third of students in the growing sixth form. The percentage of students with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is well below average and only one student has a statement of special educational need. The percentage of students from ethnic minority backgrounds is well below average but increasing. Few students speak English as a second language. Boys come from over 30 primary schools so the school’s catchment area is large. The intake is not typical of grammar schools, with students coming from a wider range of social backgrounds than is normally the case. In September 2004 the school achieved specialist status in science, mathematics and ICT. The school was awarded Healthy School Status in 2004 and 2007.
