Chatham South School - Welcome

For parents and carers looking for a school
I am still of the opinion that the best way to get to appreciate a school is to visit. After you have looked at the site, please feel free to contact the school office and make an appointment (01634 404277). We love to show people round! If you are looking to obtain a place for a new year 7 intake in September, then you will need to make contact with Medway’s Admissions Manager, Ms Tracey Carter (01634 331110) who will be able to guide you through the process.

If you are moving to the area and have a child or children already of secondary school age, then contact Ms Carter or we would be delighted if you contact us directly. The senior member of staff to ask for is Assistant Headteacher, Mrs Denny Galton (01634 404277).

For parents or carers looking for a new school for their child the site gives general information concerning examination results and the way the school is structured. There is also a link to our latest Ofsted report published in March 2006. We are very proud of what is says about the school and the students who attend and invite you to take a look.

Something about the school

Chatham South School is a non selective high school taking a wide range of ability once selection has taken place. Medway LEA has a selective system of education which means that between 25% and 30% of students are selected for grammar school by assessment at 11.

You will find that we are a small, but very popular and over subscribed school only limited by the accommodation available. Since April 2001 an expansion programme began to add extra facilities to the school. We have opened new PE changing rooms, four Technology and Art rooms, two additional laboratories and we now have four computer rooms. A school hall, music and practice rooms and a drama suite have been added to the school. There has been the addition of a shared, all weather multi-court area for a variety of games and athletics.

The upgrading of the facilities has meant that we can now take extra students and our annual intake at Year 7 is now 150. The school has grown from 600 to over 750 in the last few years.

But, even with all the changes, Chatham South School will remain by national standards a small school with all the benefits that accrue from being small. Many parents like their children to attend a small school where the children are known extremely well by members of staff.

The school has a relatively small but growing Sixth Form. Most of the students study GNVQ courses at either Intermediate or AVCE level. The school is in a sixth form consortium with four other schools - Chatham Grammar School for Boys, St John Fisher School, Fort Pitt Grammar School for Girls, and Medway Community College. There are also strong links with Mid Kent College.

What is a School Council?

Our School Council is used as a voice for the pupils. The council consists of 2 representatives from every year. Together the School Council help push the school forward.

What have the School Council done in the past year?

The School Council have been involved with many things this year. They have helped the school interview candidates for the permanents position of deputy head. Thanks to the council Mr R. Raine has been appointed.
The Council have also been involved with the tag days and charity events that had taken place last year.

How do you become a member of the School Council?

Every year have their own council, consisting of two representatives from each form group. You need to be nominated by your form to be on your year council.
Once you're on your year's council you need to be nominated by that council to be on the School Council.

How do I get my ideas heard?

Everyone should know who there form reps are. To get your ideas discussed on the council you will need to talk to your form reps. They will then bring it to the year council and if they like the idea your year reps will then bring it to the School Council. The idea will then be discussed and decided on.
