Further to the requirement of the Department of Education, Chatsworth Schools has closed our schools and nurseries with immediate effect. We will be doing our upmost to support our parents who are key workers as defined by the Government. Working together is an essential part of our national effort to combat this disease. We cannot stress highly enough how important it is to keep your child at home if you can. We will continue to follow the Government’s advice and will notify parents as soon as we are able to re- open.


Please contact:  if you require further guidance on how we are helping our key workers.
