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
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.
Our 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.
Our 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.
