Every year we ask new colleagues to our school to tell us their first impressions on joining our team and this is what they had to say:
From the moment I started at CHSG I felt so welcome. Staff are friendly and supportive.
Senior leaders have an open-door policy and are always happy to talk. The students are happy, respectful and ambitious. I'm loving being part of #TeamCHSG
Laura, Support Staff member
Joining a new school can be daunting, yet the staff at CHSG made me feel incredibly welcome and helped me quickly settle in. All the staff are willing to help you, even those outside of your department which I feel is quite unusual for a school. As you walk around from lesson to lesson, both staff and pupils say ‘hello’ helping to create a really friendly environment. The pupils are hardworking, ambitious and polite and are a real pleasure to teach. It is a privilege to be a part of #teamchsg
CHSG has a warm and welcoming community that made me feel included from day one, even extending beyond my own department. I am delighted to have joined a dedicated and knowledgeable team of staff who consistently show genuine care for colleagues, students and CHSG as a whole. It is easy to feel at home and visualise a long term career here.
CHSG is a team. You feel welcome from the first day. As a former trainee, I was excited to return to the school. My department is supportive and it feels like a second home. All staff are approachable and the students are great. The school has a core focus of excellence and this can be felt all around!
