Chatsworth Schools wins Education Provider of the year

Chatsworth Schools has won Education Provider of the year at the 2022 Education Investor Awards for the second year running. The awards event was held on the evening of 8th November at the Park Plaza, Westminster Bridge Hotel.

The Education Investor award recognises the work of Chatsworth Schools over the course of 2021/22 in developing world class schools that enable pupils to be world and work ready and to be confident and well-rounded individuals. This work over the course of the last year has included: 

-  Outstanding Exam Results: In 2022, The Village Prep School in Belsize Park announced fantastic Year 6 results – including 10 scholarships (from a class of only 13 girls), at an impressive range of leading Day Schools. 2022 also saw Year 6 pupils at Benedict House School achieve the best ever 11+ pass rate in the history of the School, with 100% passing the Kent test and 80% passing the Bexley test.

-  Excellent Inspection Reports: In the most recent Independent School Inspectorate inspection report in March 2022 for Highfield Prep School, the school was found to be 'Excellent' for every single element inspected by the ISI. The ISI found that 'Throughout the school, pupils develop excellent knowledge in all areas of learning and acquire a high level of skill in literacy, numeracy and ICT which they confidently apply across the curriculum, successfully meeting the school’s aims’.

-  Creation of the Chatsworth Schools Tapestry: In 2021/22 Chatsworth Schools designed a unique learning framework that ensures every Chatsworth School can deliver a truly bespoke education tailored to every child’s needs. This bespoke framework is called the Chatsworth Tapestry and consists of six strands; mindset, wellbeing, entrepreneurship, sustainability, global and digital literacy. Each Chatsworth School is weaving these strands differently to adapt their learning to their children’s unique talents and needs.

International expansion: Chatsworth Schools have continued to expand internationally through our dedicated international school arm Blenheim Schools. Blenheim Schools is re-imagining international education for investors and school owners around the world.    

Commenting on the award, Anita Gleave, Founder and CEO, of Chatsworth Schools, said: “I am beyond proud of the Chatsworth Schools family for this award and for everything we have achieved since our launch in September 2018.  To win once is one thing, but to win two years in a row is a testament to the strength and success of Chatsworth Schools and how we live our mission of enabling outstanding futures for all our children every day”.  

She added, “We are an innovative, creative, dynamic and most importantly child-centred and learner led group of schools and I am delighted that this has been recognised by the Education Investor Awards.”
