Chester International School

We are a ground-breaking new school for 14-19 year olds in the heart of Chester.

Our rigorous curriculum, including GCSE at Key Stage 4 and an international curriculum at Sixth Form challenges our students to think and work collaboratively and creatively, make connections and apply knowledge to increasingly complex problems.

Chester International School seeks to enable students to think for themselves and act for others, to educate the next generation who will create jobs, not just seek them, and to prepare their students to confront the unexpected with intelligence and compassion.

Director of Education and Skills

My experience with the Studio school has been fantastic, Kate has answered so many questions for me and put my daughters at ease


This is such an amazing school and the efforts that have gone into its creation are awesome as is the support from so many businesses


Best decision we ever made moving my daughter to this school. Her grades have improved and she goes to school with a smile on her face


Chester International School is made up of a wonderful team of welcoming, friendly, enthusiastic people. I wish I could attend myself!


This is an incredible opportunity for the younger generations coming through in the Chester area... I only wish I could enrol too!


I’ve never come across teachers before who are so passionate about what they do, who seem so determined to make every student count
