Welcome to CHS South, our brand new eight-form entry, mixed, comprehensive school providing an initial 180 places, growing to 210 places in 2019, from Year 7 to Year 11. We opened in September 2018 with a full 180-place cohort in Year 7. We will then grow to capacity over a five-year period.
I am immensely proud to be entrusted with the role of Headteacher at CHS South. To be able to extend the fantastic provision on offer at Chorlton High School to more young people in our community is one I embrace whole-heartedly. Over the past 14 years, I have been honoured to contribute to the development of Chorlton High School as a member of the Senior Leadership Team and I passionately believe in our ethos of providing an education that allows young people to become creative, happy and successful. CHS South will allow more young people in our community to access an education that not only allows them to achieve academic excellence but also acquire the creative skills necessary to successfully apply their abilities and navigate their way in an ever changing landscape.
We ensure the young people at CHS South have access to a broad and forward thinking enrichment curriculum. We are well positioned to offer a diverse and engaging sports curriculum through our fantastic relationships with the vast array of sports providers in our community. Furthermore our expertise and understanding of the creative arts, an industry growing faster in our local community than anywhere in the UK outside London, will ensure our young people are provided with the opportunities to develop and hone their skills in order to become the next generation of creative trailblazers.
The delivery model at CHS South is based upon the structures and processes that have successfully delivered change at Chorlton High School. We use our curricular strength to ensure that we challenge underperformance and underachievement so that all students can achieve success.
We use our operational strength to ensure that our provision is efficient and effective, accurately targeting resource to need and delivering quality outcomes.
Headteacher, CHS South
