Chestnut Grove students achieve excellent examination results as demonstrated by a rising trend in performance and academic attainment that consistently exceeds national averages. Engaging teaching and learning is at the heart of Chestnut Grove. The Academy is proud of its inclusive approach in which students of all abilities are supported in order to meet their potential.

Chestnut Grove offers a diverse curriculum which includes a strong core of English, Maths, Science, Humanities, Modern Foreign Languages and Philosophy, Beliefs and Ethics (RE), providing all students with access to the English Baccalaureate. This is complemented by an extensive range of creative and vocational subjects which provide breadth and balance to the curriculum. All of our Key Stage 4 courses offer progression into the Sixth Form.

We are particularly proud of the impressive progress our students make as they journey through the academy. A personalised curriculum that challenges and supports in equal measure is the key to our success. Students of all abilities are challenged including our Gifted and Talented students and also those with Special Educational Needs who are given specific intervention in order to overcome barriers to learning.

Education at Chestnut Grove is about much more than examination results. We aim to instill a love of learning in our students that will fully prepare them for the modern world. Through inspiring lessons, students develop confidence, the ability to communicate effectively and an appreciation of the complexity of the world around them. Chestnut Grove Academy is a stepping stone to a successful and fulfilling life.
