John Chilton School has an innovative approach to the education of pupils with a range of cognitive, physical and medical needs aged 4-19 years. The school is located currently on two sites; both are co-located with mainstream academies. We aim for our pupils to become confident, independent and motivated members of the community.
The school is located in Northolt in the London Borough of Ealing and close to good transport links
Our Ofsted Inspection in November 2018 said:
This school continues to be good.
Pupils join your school at different ages and points in the school year. Irrespective of when they start, pupils make good progress from that point. This is because leaders have developed an effective multi-disciplinary team approach to teaching and learning. This provides holistically for pupils’ physical, social, emotional and educational needs.
At John Chilton School, we strive for the development of confident, motivated and independent learners in a sociable, safe and accessible environment; supported by communication and engagement between home, school and partnerships.
We aim for our pupils to:
- leave the school with the skills, abilities, potential and confidence to meet the challenge of adult life in a fast changing world;
- gain independence skills including, travel, community and cooking skills wherever possible;

- communicate effectively and confidently;
- use the internet safely and with purpose;
- develop positive attitudes towards healthy lifestyles, promoting activity, creativity and competition through sport and leisure;
