Welcome to Chengelo
Founded in 1988 Chengelo School has built up an excellent reputation for academic excellence, sporting success, and leadership training. This website can only touch on a very small part of all that we do but we hope to inspire you enough to visit us in the very near future.
The school began with a clear vision, summed up in the motto ‘As a Witness to the Light’. Taken from John’s gospel, this is our constant challenge to aspire to standards in all areas of school life that truly give honour to God.
Our Mission and Philosophy
We believe every child is given a unique set of gifts and abilities from God and it is our job as educators to help nurture these. As we discover what makes each child special so we help to build their confidence and sense of self worth.
This is why we run a broad based curriculum that values the traditional academic subjects, the creative curriculum, and the opportunities for character development and leadership training through boarding life and responsibilities and through our unique outdoor education programme.Find out More
