Culcheth High School is a highly successful and over-subscribed community school in the heart of semi-rural Warrington. We are recognised as “a good school” by OFSTED with many outstanding features. 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.
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. Culcheth High School enjoys an enviable reputation for being a warm and welcoming school where genuinely every person matters.
We seek to be ambitious and to be bold for students’ futures. Seeing the rich potential in every young person and encouraging exceptional progress is at the centre of our approach. Recognising and developing students’ personal strengths and skills is very important to us – the quality of our pastoral care is extremely high. As a strongly inclusive school it is our belief that aspiration is for all.
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. This is testament to our core philosophy of ‘Learning for Life’ as a school deeply rooted in its community. READ MORE
