Welcome to Chesterfield High School

<p>The school is recognised both locally and beyond as having a committed, flexible and innovative staff, who, while working constantly to improve present standards, are positively involved in exploring new possibilities through which the basic curriculum may be enhanced and given what we call a "Chesterfield flavour". </p>

<p>Initiatives are encouraged and supported by a coherent policy of Staff Development which focuses on the needs of the school and the professional developments required by staff to meet these needs. </p>

<p>We are involved with Industrial Mentoring links, Education Business Partnership and the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. We have also been successful in gaining Crest Science Awards at Regional and National level. Performing Arts in Dance, Drama, Music and Art are also a feature of the school and links with Artists in Residence and Community Performance work are well developed. The school has been awarded both Artsmark Gold and Sportsmark Gold commendations as well as the Healthy Schools Award. We have also been recognised as an Extended School. </p>

<p>We place great emphasis on empowering students with an active role in decision making within the school. Each year group has an elected Year Council from which there are elected representatives who form the whole School Council. This is an important aspect of school life and gives the students ownership and responsibility for their school community. The School has significant involvement in Initial Teacher Training and is a Partner School with Edge Hill, Hope and Liverpool John Moores University and a Partnership Promotion School within the Sefton area. </p>

<p>The school is constantly developing curriculum pathways at all Key Stages with the aim of creating a coherent range of provision which allows for meaningful progression. At Key Stage 4, differentiated pathways have been developed which are designed to provide a core entitlement while at the same time meeting a variety of needs. Vocationally related courses have been developed in Art, Performing Arts, Business, Construction, ICT, Sport, Health and Social Care and Applied Science. Post-16 programmes are offered at Level 3, with a number of vocationally related courses offered to students on 14-19 vocational pathways. A wide range of AS/A2 BTEC and OCR Nationals provision has been developed. </p>

<p>High quality Teaching and Learning is the key ingredient in enabling pupils to achieve and even exceed their potential. At the heart of our priority for improvement is the focus on equipping pupils with the essential skills for learning, both in the classroom and during independent study time. By working together with Parents and Governors we will deliver high quality education, sustain high standards and continue to provide outstanding personal development and care for our students.</p>
