Chew Valley School is an 11-18 Comprehensive School for over 1170 students, including 200+ in the Sixth Form. Our school is fully comprehensive and consistently oversubscribed each year. In February 2018 the school became an academy and joined the Lighthouse Schools Partnership (LSP) which comprises of three hubs around the secondary schools of ourselves, Backwell and Gordano Schools. The school is situated 8 miles south of Bristol between the villages of Chew Magna and Chew Stoke. It stands on a 30-acre site in open countryside overlooking Chew Valley Lake. The school buildings are surrounded by very pleasant grounds and landscaped gardens with on-site parking for staff. There are extensive playing fields, and good sports facilities.
As a member of the Lighthouse Schools Partnership the school offers a comprehensive package of staff rewards.
Because of the rural catchment area of the School, covering about 120 square miles in the Chew Valley, the majority of students travel to and from School in coaches provided by the Local Authority. A large proportion of our Year 11 students choose to proceed to sixth form courses each year. In addition to a wide range of sports teams, clubs and societies there is an extensive programme of visits and field study work. There are also strong traditions in Music, Dance and Drama within the School.
