Students in sports uniforms at Christleton High School

At Christleton High School we believe that education is about the whole person. Every pupil has the ability to achieve something worthwhile and excel in some field. Our sports programme is designed to help young people identify and develop what they are good at, leading them to greater confidence and self-esteem. Enjoying success in sport, at their own level, can often be the key to pupils’ success across the school.

This is why our department mantra is Increase Participation, and Aspire for Excellence.

The School’s reputation for sport is outstanding, having produced many athletes who go onto play at District, County and National Level. There many representative sports on offer to students throughout the year. In 2015 Christleton High School was named the Number 6 Sports School in England by School Sports Magazine based on results and upon closer analysis was the Number 1 Non-Selective Sports School in England an accolade we strive to achieve again as a department.
