Preparing individuals for whatever they choose to do in life
- Chinthurst seeks to treat every member of its family as unique and equally valuable.
- The ethos challenges selfishness and teaches:
1. consideration for others
2. traditional values

- We encourage independent thinking and the self-confidence to constantly challenge
- Our core purpose is to prepare pupils to transfer to their Senior Schools at 13. However, we do have a small amount of leavers at 11+, and pupils are prepared for entrance examinations at this time.
