Chertsey School is located in the small rural township of Chertsey, approximately 20km north of the Mid Canterbury town of Ashburton. Chertsey School draws its children from the township and surrounding local area, which means the majority of our children come from a rural background. We also have a number of students who live in Ashburton and travel to school on bus routes servicing both sides of the State Highway.
Chertsey School is a Year 0-6 school and our children are schooled in two classrooms; the Junior Room houses the Year 0-3 students. The Senior Room houses the Year 4-6 students. Upon reaching the end of Year 6 the majority of our students travel to Ashburton Intermediate School by bus for their Year 7/8 schooling.
Due to the location and size of our school we have an active and involved parent community who are often seen about the school visiting or helping in classrooms or assisting with working bees and fundraisers. The Chertsey School Board of Trustees has a mixture of skills and experience. The Chertsey School Home and School group is a very active and dedicated team who are regularly involved in school fundraisers.
Staff at Chertsey School do their utmost to ensure that our children are exposed to as many opportunities as possible and we encourage whole school involvement in events such as Cross Country, Ashburton Music Festival, Festival of Cultures, Athletics, Rippa Rugby as well as specified groups for TBall & Miniball.
Chertsey School prides itself on being an inclusive school. We welcome all learners and make sure their transition is smooth and well planned.
