As a high performing school over a number of years, we genuinely strive to become the ‘best that we can be’ in all aspects of our work for young people and the community.
Our school’s purpose is to inspire students to achieve and guide them to be confident, articulate and skilled citizens to enable them to thrive in a diverse British and global community. The school is committed to exacting high standards, to expecting excellence from all and to developing outstanding learning with staff and students. We are an ambitious and forward thinking institution where students’ success lies at the heart of everything we do.
We relish the opportunity and responsibility for driving student success forwards and we are very proud of all our young people’s achievements – attainment and progress at Culcheth are consistently much higher than that found in most schools nationally.
Culcheth High School enjoys an enviable reputation for being a warm and welcoming school where genuinely every person matters.

Parents are kept well informed of how they can keep their children safe and the school website provides a range of resources specifically for parents. Where specific issues occur, leaders act swiftly, sensitively and scrupulously. (OFSTED 2017)
Pupils are given a wide and varied programme of support so that they know how to keep themselves safe in school and in the community. (OFSTED 2017)
Leaders’ work to raise the achievement of disadvantaged pupils has been impressive. The difference between the achievement of this group of pupils and their peers nationally has more than halved in one year. This massive impact is evidence of the capacity and tenacity of leaders. (OFSTED 2017)
Teachers are provided with a well thought out programme of ongoing training which has the teachers’ standards at its core. Staff value this and pupils commented to inspectors that teaching is engaging. (OFSTED 2017)
Since the last inspection, the quality of teaching has improved and pupils’ work shows that they continue to deepen their skills, knowledge and understanding. (OFSTED 2017)
The leadership team ‘run the school with an honest integrity which nurtures a high-trust environment where pupils and staff can flourish.’ (OFSTED 2017)

Students consistently achieve results that are well above those of students nationally. In 2013, the proportion of students gaining at least five GCSE passes at grade C or above, including in English and mathematics, and their attainment in English and in mathematics, increased even further
