Indpendent Minds Global Citizens Enrol Here Work Anywhere

Christleton International Studio

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.

Christleton International Studio 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.
