Chapel-en-le-Frith High School is a mixed gender comprehensive school in Chapel-en-le-Frith in the county of Derbyshire, England. It serves pupils aged 11 to 16 from the town, from nearby Whaley Bridge, and the surrounding villages.
The school was established in 1952 as Long Lane Comprehensive. Its has since been renamed Chapel-en-le-Frith County Secondary School, and finally Chapel-en-le-Frith High School. In 2005 the school relocated to the other side of Long Lane, and the former site was redeveloped as the school's sports fields. The modern school is housed in a specially built one-piece building.
In 2010, 52% of the school's students achieved at least five A*–C GCSE results including maths and English. This was below the averages nationally and for the Derbyshire Local Education Authority, 55% and 53.4% respecitvely. It does not have a sixth form, although it does have an adult education programme.
The school uniform is a white polo shirt with the school emblem on the chest, a red stripe on the collar and sleeves; a black sweatshirt with the school emblem, and black trousers. It used to be a classic shirt-and-tie uniform, but changed when the school moved into the new building.
The school restaurant operates a cash-free system where pupils 'top-up' a swipe card on a machine in order to pay for meals. This enables the students to pay for any meal quickly and efficiently. They can also be used to buy drinks and snacks at breaktime.
Every year, the school holds an event called the STEM (Science, TEchnology and Maths) day where there are different displays and events relating to science. Some popular activities are building paper rockets and cooking. The event is also officially recognized by the AA who place yellow signs around Chapel-en-le-Frith with directions to the school.
- High Peak Constituency MP Andrew Bingham was a pupil at this school, when it was called Long Lane Comprehensive.
