Chichester High School for Boys, often referred to as CHSB, is a community school, with specialist status of Business and Enterprise College, for boys aged 11 to 18 located in the city of Chichester, West Sussex, England. It was formed in 1971 during the schools reformation act of the 1970s by the amalgamation of two well established schools; The Lancastrian School (established 1895) and the High School for Boys (established 1935).
Dress at Chichester consists of a white shirt, green and white tie, grey trousers, grey pullover and a blazer (the green uniform jacket). Variations include various society ties worn to meetings of the respective societies.
The campus is divided into two parts. The Lower School is the oldest part of the school and is for the younger boys. The Main School is the newer part of the school and is for the older boys.
The school's buildings and facilities were expanded in the 2000s to include a science block, a learning resources centre, an administrative and reception area, an Astroturf pitch, and a new sports hall. The South Downs Planetarium, supported by local resident Sir Patrick Moore, was opened on the site on 5 April 2002. A Sports and Conference Centre was officially opened in July 2009 by Major Timothy Peake, a former pupil of the school, and named after him. 
The school's sporting facilities include an international-standard irrigated all-weather hockey pitch, large sports hall, tennis courts and extensive grounds for a whole range of competitive sports such as: rugby, cricket, hockey, tennis, squash, athletics, basketball, football, badminton, etc. A separate sports centre was completed in 2009, providing students with one of the best sports facilities for any school student.
The Sixth Form is divided into Lower 6th and Upper 6th. Upper 6th students often go on to higher education in UK universities. It currently has about 400 students and achieved A-Level results of 99% A or B grades in the June 2008 exams.
Combined Cadet Force
Chichester High School is one of 59 state schools in the UK to have a Combined Cadet Force. It has an Army section affiliated with the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment and an RAF section but no Navy section due to an agreement at the time of the formation with the local Sea Cadets.
The school has an alumni society named the Old Cicestrians. For some time it was called the Chichester High and Lancastrian Old Boys, or CHALOBs, but reverted to the original name in 2007. In former times a magazine "The Martlet" was issued to all boys at the end of each school year as well as a full school photograph. Before converting to a comprehensive system there were eight houses: King, Story, Wilfred, Richards, Andrews, Lake, Bell and Sherborne at the grammar school, each based on a geographical area.
