Chapel-en-le-Frith High School Students

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, for the last three years our results have been well above national and local averages on all key indicators, with 70% of our students in summer 2014 achieving at least 5 A* to C grades including English and Maths. More details of our 2014 results are available here.

Admissions to our school are handled by Derbyshire County Council, you can get more details here.

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.

Year 10 Sponsored Walk

Sponsored Walk 2015The rain finally stopped and the sun shone as over 100 Year 10 students from Chapel-en-le-Frith High School raised money for the Teenage Cancer Trust charity by completing a sponsored walk this week.
