Described as ‘the fastest-growing children’s author in the UK’ comedian David Walliams has sold more than 4 million books in Britain alone.

drama292More about Cannock Chase High School

On behalf of students and staff, I would like to welcome you to the Cannock Chase High School website

Barrie Scott, Headteacher

CCHS is an 11-19 state-funded comprehensive school with Academy status, which was awarded to the  school in 2011 in recognition of our continuing success in improving standards. We are one of the highest  achieving schools in the area.

We have 1100 students on roll, with over 200 in the Sixth Form. Our academy status enables us to work closely with our partner primary schools, other secondary schools, colleges and local businesses, enabling us to continue to improve standards of achievement across Cannock and surrounding areas. Our 2014 Open Evening is on 23 September, and you are also welcome to visit the school at any time: please telephone reception to arrange this.

Our results over the last 4 years regularly place us in the top 5% of similar schools nationally,. The DfE said that in 2013 “There is statistically no better school within a 75 mile radius”. In 2014  29% of our year 13 students won places at some of the top Russell Group universities, and our A level results continued to improve.  The progress made by students at GCSE also stayed high, with both maths and English hitting 57% of students achieving a A*-C.

We are very proud of our successes, and of our students.

Cannock Chase High School is a great place to study and to work.
