When a child joins Chetham’s, both that student and his or her family become part of the School community. We work with families to help your child adjust to the changes that come with a specialist education, whether he or she is boarding or travelling from home each day, and work with you to ensure that you stay closely connected to your child’s education – however far away you may live.
A great deal of information about Chetham’s, its policies and procedures, can be found using the links and downloads on this page. However, we know that parents will want more individual information on their own child’s progress, and have a number of resources to help you stay in touch.
The Parents’ Gateway enables families to access their child’s timetable, school reports and other personalised information. All new parents will receive a log in for the Gateway before their child starts school.
All students and their families are invited to at least one parent-teacher meeting during the year, with additional meetings for new students and for those preparing to make choices about subject options or higher education applications. Between these meetings, parents are always welcome to contact academic, music or pastoral staff to discuss students’ progress, to raise concerns or to ask questions. Parents should never feel that a question is too small; we are committed to the welfare of every student, and look forward to working with you to help your child make the most of studying at Chetham’s.
