Chesterfield High School



‘For everyone the best’

It gives me great pleasure to introduce myself as Headteacher of Chesterfield Academy.  I have had the honour of leading Chesterfield since January 2019 and I am very proud of all that our students and staff achieve every day. 

At Chesterfield High School, we are very proud of our long history, we celebrate our current achievements and we are excited about our future.  We remain dedicated to the vision of the school and strives to provide the best quality education for children of all backgrounds, abilities and beliefs.

A great school has to be an outward looking school. Chesterfield works in partnerships locally, regionally and at national levels. Locally, we work in partnership with: ‘CAPITAL’, working with Crosby secondary and primary headteachers on leadership and curriculum links; Merseyside Youth Association; Merseyside Violence Prevention (MVP); Everton in the Community; Everton Foundation; Liverpool FC Foundation, Autism Initiatives; Sefton Safer Partnerships. Regionally, we work closely with: Rainbow Trust Teaching Hub; Best Practice Learning; Nationally, we work with: NACE; Holocaust Beacon School Network; PiXL schools; Youth Sports Trust; Football Association Foundation and Teach First.

The excellence of our work has led to a range of awards and commendations, such as: Holocaust Beacon School, School Wellbeing award, NAVAJO, Stonewall Gold Champion award, NACE Challenge award, and Parent Partnership award. The school is currently seeking a NASEN award.

Everything that we do at Chesterfield rests on the strong foundation of our values and ethos.  We believe that all members of our community should have PRIDE in themselves and everything they do academically and personally.  

P – Presentation – smartly dressed and excellent work in books

R – Respect – listen to others and be tolerant of diversity

I – Integrity – being honest at all times

D – Dedication – being at school every day and working hard

E – Exemplary –manners at all times in school and in our community

These values underpin all that we do at Chesterfield.

Our rich and exciting curriculum stimulates student interest and offers a broad and balanced education for all. The achievement, progress, happiness and well-being of our students is at the centre of our vision and actions. By working in partnership with all of our students and their families, we strive to ensure that the children in our care benefit from the high quality education that they truly deserve.

We have a commitment to the highest academic standards. Through a wide range of curricular, extra-curricular and supra-curricular activities, Chesterfield High School aims to enhance the life opportunities of all of our students. It is through the foundation of success at school that students will truly experience ‘Life in all its fullness’, in education and beyond.

Chesterfield High School is friendly and welcoming. We offer excellent care, guidance and support for all our students. We have very high standards of behaviour and we strive for academic achievement for all of our students.

It’s about equity; it’s about life chances; it’s all about putting students first.
