Chailey is a small, thriving, successful school set in rural Sussex within easy reach of Brighton.  We are proud of our traditional values and innovative approaches to Teaching and Learning.  Staff are friendly, dedicated and supportive; our students are happy and proud to be part of the school. Chailey is a school where teachers and students can thrive. We are seeking a talented, innovative colleague who would be keen to work with motivated and responsive young people. Visitors to Chailey School often comment on the calm teaching environment and fantastic relationships between students and teachers.   

We had our last Ofsted visit in January 2017 and we are very pleased with the feedback that we received. The Ofsted report contained comments such as: 

• ‘an established culture and ethos of the school, which is enhanced by the strong relationships between staff and pupils’  

• ‘pupils make good, and sometimes better, progress’ 

• ‘pupils appreciate what staff do for them and, therefore, their conduct is typically exemplary, both in lessons and around the school’ 

We believe that this is a very strong foundation from which to aspire to excellence in everything we do.
