Chancellor's is a Foundation school with 1,104 pupils, aged 11-18. It is situated in the village of Brookmans Park in South Hertfordshire. It has been a specialist mathematics and computing college since September 2004 and has had a second specialism in languages since April 2008. Many of the students come to the school from the local villages as well as Potters Bar and Hatfield. Additionally, 10% of students are admitted to the school on their musical aptitude. The school opened in September 1964. The impressive grounds are some 15 acres in extent including substantial sports grounds. The curriculum is broad in Years 7 and 8. In Years 9, 10 and 11 students study a broad core of subjects including Citizenship, English, Mathematics, Physical Education, Religious Education, Science and ICT. In addition, students are able to express a limited preference for further subjects to support their individual interests and aspirations. A large percentage of our students stay on to study in our sixth form. We are also committed to offering our students a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities. Music and drama flourish at Chancellor's with many concerts and performances. There are clubs for students of all ages, and regular visits are arranged to plays, exhibitions and museums. The main sports include football, rugby, netball, athletics and basketball and a number of our students play for county teams. There are 82 members of the teaching staff, both full and part time supported by a professional and organised associate staff. Further details about Chancellor's may be found on our website.
