Chilwell is an oversubscribed school set in impressive grounds, and has experienced significant growth in numbers over the past three years. It has specialist status in the arts, mathematics and computing and serves the local area with the aim of establishing an extended positive learning community. Students come from a range of social and economic backgrounds and attainment on entry is broadly average, but improving. The sixth form is housed in the impressive Lakeview building. The school has joint use of the local community sports centre and runs a community theatre as a business function. Strong links have been established with its feeder primary schools. The school population is predominately White British but in recent years has become more diverse in its nature. The proportion of students who are entitled to free school meals, have statements of special educational needs or who find learning difficult are below the national average. A new deputy headteacher took up post in September 2008 and a new headteacher in April 2009, seven weeks before this inspection.
