Welcome to

Chappel C of E (VC)

Our school is a small rural primary school and this allows us to know every child and family very well. We have good links with our local community and like to participate in village events. We are a church school with a Christian ethos and have fostered good relationships with our local church, St Barnabus. 

Chappel is also proud to be part of the LIFE Education Trust who strive to build great learning communities which unleash creativity and champion optimism, in a spirit of compassion. We work collaboratively with other Colchester schools who are also part of the Trust.   

Chappel is a place where all children feel safe and enjoy coming to school. We are proud to share our learning environments and large outdoor space with new parents and visitors. The children are always ready to tell you about what they are learning and involve you in what they are doing. They will happily give you a tour of the school!
