Christleton High School is a large comprehensive school located in the small village of Christleton on the outskirts of Chester. Its current headmaster is Mr Tony Lamberton. The school has Specialist status in Maths and Computing with Business and Enterprise. It has its own Sixth Form and so offers A-Levels, amongst many other qualifications.
The current uniform for the school consists of a white shirt (or polo shirt during the summer term with the school creast), grey or black trousers or skirt, a tie (optional during the summer term) and a navy blue sweatshirtwith the school creast. The sixth form have a more relaxed uniform, consisting of - for males - a top with collar (shirt or t-shirt) and any trousers excluding tracksuit bottoms, and for females - a sleeved top (that covers the shoulders) and any trousers or skirt again excluding tracksuit bottoms. Both sexes cannot wear tops with large logos or writing, or clothing that is obtrusive or impractical.
On site is Christleton Sports Centre, run by CADSART, the Chester And District Sports And Recreation Trust. The facilities include a sports hall, gym, squash court, dance room and a large outdoor floodlit court (suitable for tennis and football). A new Olympic sized swimming pool has recently been built. Students at the school are free to use these facilities either as part of their Physical education lessons or during breaks in lessons but the students must hold a mebership and pay if it is to be used during their own time.
The school in the news
The school first made headlines in 2002 when former headteacher Geoff Lawson introduced an experiment aimed at helping nicotine-addicted pupils quit smoking. Fifteen-year-old pupils from the school were permitted two cigarette breaks a day under strict supervision of teachers. This policy no longer applies with smoking being forbidden on school grounds.
The school has been in the news numerous times for good exam results - both at GCSE level and A level - nearly always achieving above national average. In 2007 72% of GCSE grades were A*-C and 55% of A level grades were A or B.
The school's last OFSTED inspection was in June 2007, and was a follow-up from a previous inspection (February 2006) in which the school was given notice to improve. In the first inspection the school was given the lowest possible grade (grade 4 - inadequate) for the overall effectiveness of the school. The Sixth Form was given a grade 3 (satisfactory).
In the re-inspection Ofsted found the school to have significantly improved, and gave it a grade 3 for overall effectiveness of the school, and grade 2 (good) for the Sixth Form.
Building work was recently completed on a large new block housing the maths department, connected to the school by a covered area (for use by junior students at break and lunch, etc) and the swimming pool, described above. The library was also renovated, a number of new ICT facilities added and lots of the old furniture replaced. Although in 2010 ofsted gave the school mostly 1s and some 2s, a big improvement.
