Welcome to Christleton High School
Bringing Aspirations to Life in a Happy, Hardworking and Caring Community

Christleton High School 60 Years - 1958 - 2018

Welcome to Christleton High School: a safe, happy and stimulating high school where students genuinely want to reach their full potential and where dedicated, highly motivated teachers inspire them to achieve their goals.

With over 1,350 students on roll, we are a highly successful school situated in the picturesque village of Christleton. Approximately three miles from the centre of Chester, the School serves a community of small villages and housing on the east side of the city.

We are a school where the desire to learn is infectious and students of all abilities flourish, everyone works hard to create a learning environment where all are welcome and diversity is celebrated.

Consequently, academic standards at the school are very high and frequently the highest in the region, thanks to highly motivated staff, children who wish to learn and parents who support them.

We are a school where staff and students have a strong sense of purpose, teachers constantly strive to provide inspiring learning and extra-curricular initiatives. After all, as life skills continually advance, it’s essential we remain up-to-date.

Accordingly, we strive to work with every student to nurture their individual abilities and equip them for success on their pathway through life.

AD Stenhouse, Headteacher

Quite simply, at Christleton, we believe that everyone has talent and we work hard to ensure that the atmosphere in Christleton remains very special.

The school has undergone a number of major refurbishments in the last five years to continually improve its excellent facilities for learning. All windows have been replaced, buildings have been re-faced and a complete re-signing of the front of the school has been set off with a striking new copper frontage, adding to our recent iResearch Centre.

We also have a large Leisure Centre, indoor swimming pool and 3G pitch, which are jointly managed and available for use by students and staff during the day.

The school is a central part of the newly created Multi-Academy Trust, The Learning Trust. This is an exciting time in the development of Christleton High School as it collaborates with Queen’s Park High School and the new Chester International School, both of which are located in the centre of Chester.

This change, like all the activities we do and the initiatives we introduce, was only ever initiated to further improve the future opportunities for all of our students.

AD Stenhouse, Headteacher
