The current Chapel-en-le-Frith High School was formed in 2003 by the merger of the existing local secondary school with John Duncan Special School, Buxton.  The school’s current 38 place enhanced resource provision teaches an independent,  non-GCSE curriculum to its students who typically have moderate to severe special educational needs.  This merged arrangement is highly unusual in an English school and makes the school’s data difficult to compare meaningfully with other schools. 

Government data on the school, including the performance tables, combine the results of the enhanced resource students with those of the mainstream population.  The “Mainstream students studying a GCSE curriculum” column in the table above removes the enhanced resource cohort and provides a more accurate comparison with other schools locally and nationally.
