Our Mission Statement

At Henry Chadwick our school motto is “Learn to Live.” In all that we do we want to help our pupils develop the necessary skills for this to happen.

We want to create a happy, caring, secure environment in which our children can develop confidence, individuality and good learning habits. We strive to nurture and develop the whole child, preparing each individual for the experiences, opportunities and responsibilities of adult life. In this way each child may have the opportunity to achieve his or her potential.

Vicki has taught at Henry Chadwick School since 2010 and has recently been promoted to headteacher. In her previous role as Assistant Headteacher at the school, she worked as part of a team of local school leaders to monitor and improve provision and outcomes in a cluster of local schools.  She is committed to maintaining and developing the nurturing and caring environment that Henry Chadwick offers but is also proud of the high academic standards that it achieves. 

Although Vicki has lived locally for many years and has strong links to the community, her childhood was spent in South Africa. She has been extremely keen to bring the enriching sporting and educational experiences that she was exposed to, to the small village school where she is based.  She has a particular passion for wild swimming and brings her enjoyment of life into her professional practice.
