As Headteacher of CHSB (Chichester High School for Boys), I would like to welcome you to our website. I hope that you will find it useful and enjoyable. The website is intended to give you a sense and flavour of what CHSB is like as a school, a Business & Enterprise College and as a real community. CHSB is a 11-19 Boys’ school, with a large mixed 6th Form, in the centre of Chichester. We have a broad and balanced curriculum, with a fundamental interest in Business & Enterprise. It is of no surprise that OfSTED acknowledged our specialist curriculum as ‘Outstanding’ in our Inspection of January 2012.
CHSB is a rapidly improving school, well on its way to becoming Good and Outstanding. Our Vertical Tutoring system enables students to be one of five strong and caring communities where everyone can be sure of support and encouragement at all times.
We are proud of our great history and tradition, but the future is also of great importance to us. Examination results are a priority, but other aspects of a rounded education matter too, such as sports, drama, music, Combined Cadet Force (CCF), overseas visits, learning outside the classroom and charity work.
We expect our students to achieve their full potential. Anything is possible in CHSB, as we achieve success through respect, learning and achievement. Our examination results are improving significantly. We have increased our 5+ A*-C GCSE results, including English and Mathematics, by 14% since 2009. This year we achieved a record 60% of young people attaining this important benchmark and I am very confident of greater success in 2013.
My aim as Headteacher is simple – I want CHSB to be one of the best schools in the country! If you would like to know more about CHSB, please contact us.
