About Chislehurst and Sidcup Grammar School
The school opened in the Autumn Term of 1931 and has been at three different sites since then. 'CSGS' has been at the current site for over fifty years and has undergone considerable building development, which includes a new Art & Technology block.
Chislehurst and Sidcup Grammar School aims to educate and prepare for life able pupils from all backgrounds. This mission is dynamically carried forward within a caring, happy and supportive community. The education that ‘CSGS’ offers develops its pupils intellectually, emotionally and physically. The ingrained idea of excellence in school life allows pupils to reach the highest academic, sporting, cultural and aesthetic standards. The special quality of learning in the classroom is equally matched by the richness of teaching that pupils experience.
Whilst healthy competition is central to the ‘CSGS’ ethos, there are also many opportunities for pupils to enter into the wider life of the school. Service to the school and community is enthusiastically performed and high levels of leadership and responsibility are actively taken on by pupils at all levels. There is a supreme belief that building ‘CSGS’s’ tradition of excellence comes not from dwelling on yesterday’s successes but performing tomorrow’s tasks.
The continued success of ‘CSGS’ is matched by an ongoing focus on site development and improvement. Upon extremely attractive grounds, almost unique in the south east of England, a heavy investment programme in new facilities is unfolding. Aside from a range of well-resourced specialist teaching areas, the school continues to add new buildings.
Significant enhancements to the Sixth Form Centre have also provided our Year 12 and 13 students with a dedicated study facility closely attached to the school’s Learning Resource Centre.
