About Chase Terrace Technology College

Chase Terrace Technology College is a comprehensive community school catering for students between the ages of 11 – 18 years of age. We have approximately 1350 students on roll. This number has increased year on year. There are 67 non-teaching staff and 110 teaching staff. The School is situated on Bridge Cross Road in Burntwood in Staffordshire, not far from the cathedral city of Lichfield. The school stands on a site of approximately 30 acres.

The original building was built on this site in 1932, but the original school was founded in 1860 (the boys’ school) and 1866 (the girls’ school) on Cannock Road, built by the Cannock Chase Colliery Company whose owner felt that the children of the area should have a basic education to meet the needs of a country in the process of becoming a great industrial power. It moved site due to mining subsidence of the boys’ school and in 1961 the two schools amalgamated to become Chase Terrace Secondary Modern Mixed School, opening its doors to approximately 700 pupils. In 1965 the school changed its name again, this time to Chase Terrace Comprehensive School with approximately 800 pupils. In 1979 the school went from a Comprehensive to a High school and changed its name to Chase Terrace High School, a name that stayed with it until 2002 when it became a Technology College. The new building cost £8.5 million and also houses an annex of Tamworth & Lichfield College who run a rising number of vocational training courses for our Year 10 students.

The previous Headteacher decided to retire. An appointment of a new Head had been made with a start date of 1st September 2002. On the evening of 14th August 2002, the main school buildings were destroyed by fire. What a greeting for our new Head teacher! However she was not daunted by the challenges that lay ahead. With the support of all her staff, Governors, students, parents and the local community, she worked tirelessly to ensure that education standards were maintained whilst liaising with the LEA, contractors etc during a period of intensive rebuilding work. We moved into our new building in September 2004.

Recently the school came top in the County for Contextual Value Added. We also have RM Pioneer Status, allowing us access to state of the art equipment and software.

Our Technology Status was reconfirmed this year along with the award of our second specialism – Arts. Again it is a measure of the hard work and dedication of the staff, and students at CTTC.

CTTC had a good OFSTED inspection in March 2007. However we are not complacent. We know there are issues that need addressing, and challenges that lie ahead for us and for our new Headteacher. We are ready to face them and are looking for someone who will work with us to resolve them.
