Ex-Chesterfield student Joe Gelhardt’s scores for Wigan!

Joe scored his first goal in professional football and rescued a point for Wigan at fellow strugglers Hull City.

It’s the moment every young footballer dreams of and 17-year-old Joe Gelhardt got to live it out when he scored Latics’ equaliser and his first goal in senior football to earn a 2-2 draw away at Hull City.

The England Under 18 international, fresh off the back of playing against the likes of Brazil, was introduced as a second half substitute and didn’t disappointment, sending Latics’ supporters home with smiles on their faces, none of which will have been as big as that of the smile on his own.

Congratulations Joe and here’s to many more!

Sixth Form News – 13/9/19


Year 12 spent an enjoyable day at Rock and River last Thursday. They took part in a number of activities including a high ropes course, canoeing and climbing. The day was organised as part of the induction program intended to break the ice and help student build confidence.

Below is a photograph of the extra large moth discovered on the banks of the lake which caught everyone’s attention.


Year 13 are in the process of completing their UCAS applications on line. Students applying for Oxbridge have an earlier deadline of 15th October and will need to inform the Examinations Office of the Admission Tests they need to be entered for.


The Higher Apprenticeship opportunities for Year 13 start to go live at the end of September so those considering this route will need to create an account and set up alerts. Another worthwhile publication for those considering this route is Careermap which among other information offers advice on different career pathways.


If you are not already registered on the School Gateway, please follow this link. The Gateway can give you valuable access to information about your child including their timetable and attendance.

National Theatre success for Dan!

Many congratulations to Daniel Owen (Y13) who this summer attended a National Youth Theatre junior course at Goldsmiths University in London.

Dan auditioned in March and out of 6000 students nationwide who auditioned, he was one of only 300 selected to attend the course.

Dan says “I signed up to live in student accommodation at Goldsmiths for two weeks whilst completing the course. The two weeks were an absolutely incredible experience, I met so many different people from different backgrounds and cultures and it changed my perspective on a lot of things. As an aspiring actor, the course helped me so much in terms of my development, and I learnt so many new skills and techniques that I will no doubt utilise as I continue to grow.  The course was life changing for me, and I would with complete confidence recommend it to any aspiring young actor, or just to anyone who has a passion for the arts”.

Well done Dan, from all of us at Chesterfield High School we are so very proud of you! #Chesterfield365
