Headteacher’s Welcome Message
I am extremely proud to introduce and welcome you to Chatsmore Catholic High School.
Our aim is simple, we want to be the best school in the country. This means that we can ‘hand on heart’ say that our students get a better deal than if they attended another school.
This year we were delighted that our GCSE results increased by 15% despite the implementation of new tougher GCSEs. 71% of all students achieved a Grade 4 (equivalent to a C grade) or higher in both English and Maths. Several of our departments achieved 100% 4+, with our highest ability students achieving straight Grade 7, 8 and 9s (equivalent to A* or A grades) in all of their exams. These results are an important first step but the best is yet to come, we are confident that our results in 2018/2019 will be even more impressive.
In March 2018, we were judged by Ofsted as ‘Good’ in all categories. This report is overwhelmingly positive about the journey the school has been on for the last year and confirms the staff, governors, students and parents’ absolute commitment to reach ‘Outstanding’ within one year. This is an exciting time for the school and our recent success is already breeding further success and aspiration.
As a Catholic School, Chatsmore is founded on Gospel values. We provide a nurturing environment of love, respect and discipline, where every individual is highly valued and our care and concern for others is central to our mission. We expect our students to work hard, behave well, dress smartly and pursue excellence in all that they do inside and outside of the classroom. Our culture is one of high expectations in all that we do.
