Chosen Hill School

Chosen Hill School is a successful Academy located in the rural environment of Churchdown, half way between Gloucester and Cheltenham. Chosen Hill School opened in 1959 and became an Academy Trust in 2011.  There are close to 1400 students in the school including a popular and expanding Sixth Form.

With a whole school emphasis on enabling students to develop a growth mindset, we aim to encourage students to embrace challenge and develop intrinsic motivation and ensure the key learning behaviours of resilience, resourcefulness, taking responsibility and reflection are honed as they progress on that journey.

About Us

Chosen Hill School is a happy school where students, staff and parents work closely in partnership.  Self-belief, aspiration and mutual respect are key drivers in the pursuit of a culture of excellence.  Our aim is that every individual will experience success.  That doesn't come magically - it is the result of hard work, perseverance and commitment by the student; good teaching, encouragement and feedback from staff.

Key to a student's success is their attitude to learning and, here at Chosen Hill, we place emphasis on students developing a growth mindset, where students are encouraged to take ownership and responsibility for their learning, whilst being fully supported to do so by a broad, balanced and stimulating curriculum, a rich extracurricular and cultural offer and professional student support services.

You will find a picture of life in a dynamic community where students grow in confidence, independence, leadership and resilience, not only in their lessons, but in the breadth of Chosen Hill School's provision.  We are very proud of our tradition of student leadership and ensure that students have many opportunities to contribute to the development and success of the school and to act as role models for younger students - From Year 9 Junior Prefects to Year 11 Prefects, from membership of the Year and Whole School Councils to the Sixth Form Leadership Team and House Captains, our young people take responsibility at every stage in their school careers.

Our vision for the school is that we become exemplary - that we become a school that others want to learn from and with.  We are striving for a culture of excellence that we can build on for all the generations of students to come.
