Our School

Chepstow School is a vibrant and exciting place to be. We nurture confident learners, who are caring and supportive young citizens. We are proud to be a school at the heart of our community, and foster partnership work and student leadership.

School starts promptly at 8:45 each day when students are required to register in their form groups. Any student who is more than 10 minutes late must report to the main reception and sign in. If your child is unable to attend school then please contact the attendance officer on 01291 635788 as soon as possible. If your child has to leave school during the day e.g. a hospital appointment, then the school must be notified beforehand and again the student must sign out at reception. Absences can also be reported via the website.

childrenOur catering facilities are available from 8:15 each morning in addition to break and lunch times. Water fountains are located around the school to enable students to fill their own drink bottles.

We recommend that items of school uniform are clearly labelled, however if they are mislaid all lost property is held at the main reception. We strongly advise that you do not bring any valuable items into school and we cannot accept any responsibility if such items are brought in.

Qualified first aiders are on site at all times during school hours and if your child needs to keep medication in school then please contact the school nurse at gillneil@chepstowschool.net.

 

At the end of the school day, the area immediately surrounding the school is very busy. Staff oversee the safe departure of students onto school transport, however if you are picking students up please arrange to collect them in the Leisure Centre car park. If you have any questions regarding school transport provided by Monmouthshire local authority please contact the Passenger Transport Unit on
01633 644644.

Students will be able to participate in various extra-curricular clubs and activities ranging from traditional sports such as rugby and netball to drama and language clubs. We also have numerous opportunities for your child to participate in performance activities such as Steel pans, folk and jazz groups and each year we stage a whole school production.
