30 September 2019
On Wednesday 25th September, we invited guests, families and prospective new students into CHS to enjoy another fantastic Open Evening!
Upon arrival, our visitors were warmly welcomed into the Blue Box Theatre where Ms. Morris, Chorlton High School Headteacher offered an exciting introduction to our school and school aims of ‘enabling academic success alongside creativity and inventiveness throughout our school curriculum’. Ms. Morris went on to describe our CHS Learning Journey, developed to encourage every student towards a path of creative, happy and successful learning, and celebrated our recent, exceptional GCSE results for 2019, saying - "We are delighted to see 57 of our students achieve a grade 9! Indeed, this grade was achieved across 23 different GCSE subject areas. A phenomenal achievement!"
One of our Year 8 students also delivered an enthusiastic and inspiring 'Ignite' speech, describing all the learning opportunities they have experienced here at Chorlton High School.
Our guests were then able to explore our school, visiting each department to enjoy a fantastic range of fun activities and games. Our inspirational staff were on hand to encourage participation and conversation, helping to present the ways our broad and balanced curriculum and an extensive enrichment offer support our students to achieve stunning creative, academic and sports success. Staff also provided further information about our CHS Learning Journey, values and continued achievement. Our students represented themselves brilliantly, showcasing their academic, musical, artistic and sporting talents whilst providing a lively and fun atmosphere throughout the evening.
The evening concluded as successful treasure hunters returned to our reception to receive goodie bags filled with prizes for finding our CHS Qualities of Success symbols hidden all around our school. Each visitor also left with a prospectus pack, full of primary transition information and exciting details of life and learning here at Chorlton High School.
We would like to thank all of our hard working students and staff, and everyone who attended our Open Evening for helping to celebrate Chorlton High School and the amazing Chorlton community.
