Our School

As a high performing school, we offer a rich, broad and engaging education for all our young people. Culcheth High School is a successful mixed community school currently catering for around 1100 11-16 year olds. Our current examination performance places us consistently as one of Warrington’s highest performing schools. Not only do students at Culcheth attain much higher success ratios than students nationally, they also make excellent progress from their starting points. The school’s aim is to get the very best from each student; not only through    superb teaching and learning but also by encouraging involvement in extra-curricular and community activities.

The school enjoys an enviable reputation within its locality. It is extremely popular and has been signifcantly oversubscribed in recent years with the school roll growing. It attracts students from more than 25 different primary schools within four different local education authorities. We are part of Warrington Local Authority which provides a supportive and professional advisory service. 

Our most recent Ofsted report (May 2014) gave us a grade 2 rating (“good”). We are delighted that the improvements made in the school have been given public acknowledgement. The school was rated “good” in all major areas. Inspectors praised teaching and learning (“a good proportion of lessons are now outstanding”), personal development (“behaviour and attitudes to learning are good”) and leadership and management. We were pleased with the report but not complacent. We want to improve further and our ultimate objective is to achieve Ofsted’s highest award of ‘Outstanding School’.

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.

  • A school that provides a relevant, purposeful and inspiring curriculum for all students enabling them to be active citizens in a modern diverse British and global community. 

Our School’s Values are:

We want everyone to work in a caring school where everyone is valued and everyone values relationships. Our emotionally intelligent school community will celebrate individual differences and people will understand how their actions will impact upon, and be perceived by, those they affect. 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.
