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.

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. We want everyone to be part of a caring school community where everyone is valued and everyone values relationships.  We expect all members of our school community to be the best they can be and help others to be the best that they can be by valuing: Respect, Honesty and Excellence.

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.

Culcheth High School provides an inspirational climate for learning within a safe environment. Our facilities are quite simply amongst the very best in the North West. Experienced and dedicated staff are securing key improvements on the journey towards outstanding status.

Visitors to our school comment on its exceptionally strong ethos. They describe us as a true learning community and that we stand out as being very special. They say that the learning atmosphere is tangible from the moment you enter the school – that we are not just a good school but a great one.
