Welcome to our school

Cheslyn Hay Sport and Community High School is an 11 to 18 comprehensive school of approximately 1350 students including 230 in the Sixth Form. Our large catchment area includes the villages of Cheslyn Hay, Essington and Featherstone and we have a long tradition of taking students from further afield. The school has acquired a strong reputation for enabling the young people in our care to flourish. This was confirmed by our most recent Ofsted inspection that judged us to be an outstanding school. For a number of years the school has been oversubscribed and annually our examination results are above the national average.


We believe that high expectations lead to high levels of achievement. Therefore, we set high standards for our staff and students. Our teachers and support staff members are well qualified and very committed to their work. The students are polite, pleasant and enjoyable to teach. We receive excellent support from our parents and the local community. As a school we work closely with our primary schools and other local high schools in the areas well as having excellent relationships with a number of universities and the local businesses.
