From the head of school
"Our nurturing school environment allows students to be heard and express themselves, gain confidence, think critically and globally and be recognised for their individual talents while at the same time maintaining our overall importance of community.
"Chatsworth is truly a wonderful school, and the best way to see this is to visit us in action. We welcome you to schedule time to come and experience for yourself Chatsworth’s enthusiastic community spirit."
– Tyler Sherwood, Head of School
From the parents
"The teaching staff are very approachable, encouraging parents' participation at every turn. They also arrange open days for parents to observe the learning methods. It's also fun working on the school plays, the United Nations Day costumes, decorations, volunteering for field trips and more. The school also provides extracurricular activities and the boys participate actively, from building race cars and sports to day modelling classes."
– Nicole Wong and Robert Lyons, parents of two children at Chatsworth
"Chatsworth is a great place if you want to follow the IB program, have a nurturing and caring environment, one where the teachers genuinely care and where your kids will no doubt settle in quickly and want to go to school every morning!"
– Abigail Browne, parents of two children at Chatsworth
From the students
"I’ve been at Chatsworth since 2019. The school has a very strong and welcoming community; when I first arrived here, I was welcomed with open arms, which helped me get along with my peers and teachers. I like that we’re multicultural, and our relatively small size makes us a close-knit school. One of my favourite subjects is English because I enjoy exploring English literature and how writers can express many concepts and a panorama of views."
– Misha Zefri Delaney, Year 10 (2022-23)
"I love Chatsworth’s small community size. I can connect with teachers and students on a more personal level, which allows me to form stronger relationships, learn about different cultures and feel comfortable around the people of the Chatsworth community."
– Bruno Griguoli, Year 12 (2021-22)
