Chase High School is a secondary school in Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex, England.


The school opened in 2006 on the site of the former Prittlewell Technology College,[1] and opened a new extension in April 2009, which included dance and drama studios, an independent learning centre and a cafeteria which features fingerprint recognition for students making purchases.[2]

The school grounds cover over 10 acres of land, and has three main buildings. A new sixth form block has recently been built, which includes up to date vocational education facilities and resources including hairdressing and beauty therapy alongside an up to date registration swipe system and modern fitness suite.

Sports Facilities

The School has a small playing field that is marked during the winter and spring term with a Rugby Pitch and then an Athletics track during the summer term. There is a large outside hard surfaced area that holds 5 tennis courts and 4 netball courts, and has a multi use indoor sports hall marked for one 5-a-side football, one basketball, four badminton, one volleyball court(s) and two cricket nets

The School also has a partnership with PlayFootball Southend, this is a brand new £2m, purpose built football venue that opened in 2007.

With 8 outdoor floodlit 5-a-side pitches and a full size training pitch that can also be split into 4 x 7-a-side or 2x 9-a-side pitches all equipped with an artificial 3rd generation, rubber crumb cushioned compound surface. The same surface as used by Liverpool, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich's training academies.


According to BBC figures, the school has performed relatively poorly in comparison with local and national averages in GCSE examinations previously, however this has improved constantly and consistently with 76% of all students gaining five or more A* - C grades at GCSE level in 2010, which is a significant increase compared to 51% achieved in 2009. 37% of students also achieved five or more passes at grade A* - C including English and Mathematics. Additionally, 94% of students achieved 5 or more A* to G grades which will see many of the students returning to Chase High Sixth Form to continue their studies. There were many successes from the students, including one individual attaining the equivalent of five A*’s, seven A’s and one C from a collection of GCSE’s and BTEC results.
