Why You Should Choose Christleton High School…

We recognise that seeing a school in action is a really important part of the decision-making process in choosing the school for your child to attend for the next 5 years or more.

Unfortunately, current Covid-19 restrictions do mean that our normal Open Evening and Open Morning sessions cannot take place in the usual way.

Therefore, we have engaged a media company, run by a former Christleton student, to produce a short video to showcase our school.

We do understand that children in Years 5 and 6 and their families will be making important decisions about choosing the right school for the years ahead.

Clearly the Covid-19 pandemic has had and will continue to have major ramifications on the operational running of our school well into the Autumn term and possibly beyond.

We recognise that parents and children need to get a real feel for things before making these choices. We are also very proud of our school and are keen to showcase everything that we do to prospective students and parents.

We hope that the following information will be of help and interest to you:
