I am extremely proud and privileged to be the new Headteacher of Chellaston Academy. Welcome to our website. I hope that you find all the essential information you need, but please get in touch with us if you require anything further. With students at the centre of everything that we do, we aim to provide an engaging, approachable and enjoyable learning experience for students aged 11 to 18. I  look forward to working with you all in the coming weeks and months.

Procedure For Reporting Student Absences


We kindly ask that student absences for all year groups are reported for EACH DAY OF ABSENCE by a parent/carer by 9:00am using one of the following methods:


Email - attendance@chellaston.derby.sch.uk

Telephone - 01332 702502 from 8:00am


You need to provide: your name, full name of student, form registration group and the reason for absence.


If your child is absent and you do not contact school each day, you will receive a text message and a telephone call.  If we are unable to make contact the school Attendance Officer may conduct a home visit.
