The Catholic High School


Top School in Chester

Performance Table puts The Catholic High School at the top in Chester

The government published the performance tables for secondary schools today, 13th October.  The aim of the tables is to help parents make informed choices when they apply for places in secondary schools.

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’.

Speaking to parents at the school’s Open Evening Headteacher John Murray said ‘This score is based on all of the students, in eight of their subjects, and it shows that students here make great progress’.

The new score is based on progress in Maths (doubled because it so important), English (also doubled), three academic subjects such as Science, Humanities or a Language, and three other subjects including Art, Music, Drama, PE or DT.
