Headteacher's Welcome

Here at our school, we provide a caring and encouraging environment, where young people can thrive.

We are a fully comprehensive school and sixth form offering an inclusive education for children of any faith, supporting them along their journey and delivering opportunities for all to reach their potential. It’s why we’re renowned for our high quality teaching and loving Christian community. Thanks to our highly motivated and qualified staff, our school has been recognised by ofsted as ‘Good’ and the Diocese of Shrewsbury as ‘Outstanding’. We’re committed to going that extra mile in supporting students of all faiths. And as a result, a large number of our scholars go on to study sciences, engineering, medicine and mathematics.

We are also the best school in Chester for student progress. The new key measurement is Progress 8. This compares students’ GCSE grades with their results from the end of primary school.  The great news for The Catholic High School is that we are the top school in Chester.  With a score of 0.23, the school is rated as ‘above average’, while the other Chester high schools are all rated as ‘close to national average’.  The application window has now closed to join the Top School in Chester in September 2017, however if you believe our school is the right one for your child please contact us directly to arrange a visit and discuss enrolment.  Please visit our admissions page for more information.

Our curriculum has a breadth that ensures every student has an opportunity to excel which when combined with wonderful facilities, exciting plans for the future and dedicated staff will ensure your child has the very best support throughout their secondary school experience. 

Please take a moment to watch the video where I explain a little more about our school.
