Chetwynd Primary Academy was inspected under the New Framework in October 2019. We were delighted to be recognised as Outstanding in all areas.

Our latest progress measures show that we are amongst the top 3 per cent of primary schools across the country.

We are passionate about our school, our ethos and providing our children with an excellent education and enriching experiences to promote a love of learning. We strive to provide the very highest standards of education within a caring, exciting and stimulating environment. Our children are excited by our knowledge-based curriculum and challenged to achieve their full potential.
