Thank you for taking an interest in our school; I hope that our website provides a flavour of the work that we do.
We are a caring, friendly and inclusive school with a fast developing reputation for academic excellence. Our success is founded on a wonderful staff team, a clear focus on learning and a desire to develop high aspirations in our students. We are lucky to work in modern accommodation on an attractive site that provides a superb environment for learning.
Our students are treated as individuals, supported by a strong pastoral system and given access to a wide range of extra-curricular activities. We want our students to leave school with excellent qualifications, high standards of literacy and ambitious plans for the future; above all we want them to have enjoyed school, grown in confidence and to have developed a love of learning.
We aim to match the achievements of the best schools in the country and we are determined to do so without losing the friendly, supportive and inclusive ethos that makes this school so special.
The exam results our students receive demonstrate the impact of our work. Our results are well above national and local averages on all key indicators, with 69% of our students in summer 2013 achieving at least 5 A* to C grades including English and Maths.
We are always delighted to welcome visitors, please contact us if you would like to arrange a visit or would like further information about any aspect of our work.
Read for My School
Are you in Year 7 or Year 8? Are you a keen reader? Do you like a challenge AND want the opportunity to win prizes?
The school is taking part in the ‘Read for My School’ competition, where Year 7s and 8s are challenged to read as many books as they can over a two month period (27th January to 28th March). If they take part in this competition, they will also have free access to many books online.
After reading each book pupils are just asked to log what they have read on the website. And then move on to relish the next book of their choice.
Follow the link below to enter the competition. You will need the school’s unique ‘Reading Group Code’, which is 637033.http://readformyschool.co.uk/app/#/api/register/pupil
Good luck and happy reading.
The Wizard of Oz
The final line, “There’s no place like home”, reminded the audience of the value of those closest to us and that travel and adventure are not necessarily all positive. But audiences begged to differ last week when visitors to Chapel-en-le-Frith High School were transported far from the High Peak as students performed “The Wizard of Oz” in a three night run.
