Learning to create a better world
Welcome to Churston, the only co-educational grammar school in Torbay. We believe that in a great school, academic excellence and personal development go together. We want our students to achieve a thoroughly all-round education, whatever their social background....
Our Mission, Vision & Ethos
Mission: We offer a co-educational, academic education that opens doors for students from all backgrounds. We maximise academic success through a creative and supportive culture that welcomes and includes everyone in the school.

Vision: We want our students to achieve more and be happier at Churston than at any other school, and to leave us with a passion for learning and a strong sense of social justice.

Ethos: We believe that happy, challenged and well supported students perform better, and are more caring towards each other. Student welfare is a priority and we are proud of our students’ considerate and inclusive outlook.
