Welcome from our Head

Mrs Ramsay

I am delighted to welcome you to Nicholas Chamberlaine School’s website and hope that it gives you an understanding of our school and its core values as well as providing useful information.



We are a member of the Griffin Schools Trust, and as such we are a sponsored academy.


As a proud member of the Griffin Schools Trust, our vision is underpinned by our 3 pillars: Proud Traditions, Wide Horizons and High Achievement. We seek to provide the conditions in which children discover who they are and then go on confidently to take their places in society, making a contribution to it through the use of their talents.


We are committed to providing an outstanding independent-style education for all students, predicated on breadth and excellence, a rich programme of free extra-curricular activities, an involving and stimulating physical environment and a staff team of interesting people who are motivated to advance their own knowledge and skills as well as their pupils’ achievement. We believe in 100% achievement: put simply we believe that EVERY child has the ability to succeed.


We are excited to be part of the Priority Schools Building programme and eagerly anticipate moving into a new build school in the coming years and have also already begun to create a sports hub which will be used for all Trust schools and eventually become a regional and national hub for elite sports.


I feel very proud to be the Head of such a vibrant and exciting school that is at the heart of its community.

You are most welcome to come and see for yourself why Nicholas Chamberlaine is so special. We would be delighted to welcome you to our school.


With best wishes.

Alison Ramsay,  Head of school
