DofE Training Weekend
We took our largest number of Bronze DofE students (125!) ever from Chellaston Academy on 14th / 15th April.
We also had 13 Gold students who completing their training.
A number of staff and students have recently arrived back from Kingswood - Dearne Valley in Doncaster.
Our Headteacher, Kevin Gaiderman, becomes a National Leader of Education (NLE) and we become a National Support School.
We are very proud to announce that the Headteacher and staff at Chellaston Academy have been selected for a top role supporting schools in challenging circumstances.

Values and Ethos - A message from the Headteacher
I feel privileged, having been appointed in September 2015, to be only the third Headteacher of this Academy since it opened in 1977. The ongoing continuity that this provides has given the Academy a distinctive and strong ethos in which we expect all students, regardless of ability, to maximise their progress which will lead to high levels of achievement.
We want everyone to be proud to be a part of our community. We want our students to feel safe and that they belong. This can be achieved through high expectations of both students and staff both in terms of professional standards and good behaviour which lead to students having the right to learn and staff having the right to teach.
