The day is split into 8 x 45 minute periods for all Years. We have a 10 min break in the morning and a 45 min break for lunch. Between classes there is a 5 minute break for the students to use the bathroom and prepare themselves for the next class.
Chartwell follows Cambridge program of studies but with an international approach. The school’s skills-based education teaches students to learn and adapt to whatever situations they will face in life, rather than simply remembering facts. Programs of Study outline what is to be taught and although you can ask to see these, they are available online at http://www.cie.org.uk
Candidates for admission to Chartwell International School will be placed by age and school history. Once you have provided the School with the date of birth of your child and the intended date of admission your child’s grade/year will be confirmed. If your child's current placement is different to the one our age groups policy suggests, the Chartwell Counseling Team will meet to give their recommendation. This decision will be communicated to the parents via the School Secretary or in person if at school.
Secondary: Most students use our school bus services or public transportation. However, some parents drive their children to school themselves.
All Secondary students are required to take an oral English placement test. Further details will be provided by the School Secretary once a complete set of application papers has been received.
It would be in the best interest of the child if the placement was performed at the beginning of the school year. However, keeping in mind that we are an international school and that sometimes there is reason for moving abroad during the year, if your child has been accepted at our school, the starting date is irrelevant in the sense that even if you apply in the middle of the school year we will be ready to accommodate your child
When applying for a place at Chartwell International School the family is provided with forms that need to be completed. Questions regarding medical details are included, please fill them in accordingly providing any necessary documentation to support them.

During our French class in Year 11, we decided to switch things up a bit and watch a French TV show "Arsene Lupin" with French subtitles, and it was a hit! The combination of hearing the language spoken by native speakers and having subtitles for reference really enhanced our learning experience. Plus, the show was so gripping that we couldn't help but get caught up in the story.09 Nov 2023
