Welcome from our Executive Headteacher, Yasmin Maskatiya

I am delighted to be leading Chichester High School For Boys at such an exciting and important time in the school’s history. The school has a long tradition of excellence and commitment to an all-round learning experience for the students.

We shall be working hard at CHSB to preserve these strong aspects of our practice and to develop and enhance all dimensions of the school’s work.

We aim to provide a distinctive and rich education that focuses on high quality teaching, the development of the individual and a sense of community.

As we go forward into the future, our dedicated aim at the High School is to ensure that all our students flourish and achieve.

Welcome from our Acting Headteacher, Mr Gary Potter

Chichester High School for Boys is an 11-19 school with a mixed Sixth Form, where students and staff alike are valued, respected and encouraged to excel academically and personally. Our aim is to ensure that students are happy, successful and safe within a challenging, modern and caring learning environment.  

We offer the very best education possible to ensure that our students achieve their potential whilst being prepared for the challenges of life in the 21st Century.

Every member of our school family has a significant part to play in these aims. We are committed to ensuring students, staff and parents work together effectively, sharing each others' successes and supporting each other when times are more challenging.

We want to ensure our students and staff are proud of their community by working hard to improve the life chances for themselves and everyone in it and we therefore have high expectations of all.

Chichester High School for Boys offers students a broad, balanced and rich curriculum which promotes fairness, cohesion, cooperation and community spirit. In seeking to develop the potential within our students we offer opportunities for students to both lead and support others. Our Key Stage Three enrichment curriculum is a strong example of how we seek to stretch and challenge students whilst giving them opportunities to excel in areas not usually open to them.

Nurturing pastoral care delivered by our dedicated team of community leaders and tutors supports all students to achieve their potential. Hard work, excellent behaviour, mutual respect and awareness of all members of the school is vital and it is our relentless drive to further improve the highest levels of achievement within a cohesive and inclusive learning community.

I am immensely proud of the outstanding work of our students and staff, and I would like to welcome you to our school.

Exam Results

Rise in the top grades at Chichester High School for Boys

·       The number of A and A* grades has increased across the school

·       Attainment in English and Maths continues to be higher than other boys nationally

·       A number of subjects including languages and Science have improved on their results in 2013

Gary Potter, Acting Head teacher at Chichester High School for Boys said,

“I am really pleased to see how the ability, endeavour and character of so many boys has been rewarded in the results they have achieved this summer”


*10% rise in the top grades awarded to our students
*Cambridge success for student Hannah Adams

We are delighted with this set of A-Level results and yet again, we have broken records:

  • As a Sixth Form we have increased by the top grades awarded to our students at A-Level.  This bucks the national trend which underlines even more how well our students have done.
  • 53% A*-B grades achieved.
  • Over half of our students gained at least one top grade.
  • Hannah Adams achieved 1-A* and 3-A grades and has been accepted onto a Classics course at Murray Edwards College, Cambridge University.
  • The overall pass rate matches the national average at 98%.
  • We have seen a 7% increase on last year’s results for students achieving A*-B in Facilitating subjects – these subjects help students to gain entry to the top universities.
