Chase High School
Chase became an Academy on 1 April 2015 and is working to help students to develop their achievements both academically and in terms of their personal development. Part of this work sees the encouragement of a wide range of extra-curricular activities and school trips, extra responsibility for pupils via the prefect scheme, and a view to help children progress to post-16 education either here or elsewhere.
• For 2016, 39.3% of students achieved 5 or more GCSEs grades A* to C, including Maths and English. This is a 15% increase on the previous year and we are delighted that the children were able to secure grades which are in line with the best we have seen at Chase High since 2011. Nonetheless, we are working hard to help more children to achieve or exceed the government’s expected progress.
• For 2016, the average scores in the sixth form were a Merit+ per vocational course and a C- per A-level course. Out of our 83 year 13 students last summer 36 were able to secure places in their first choice university and we helped two students to achieve places on a nursing course. A number of pupils have benefitted from being able to study an A-level and a Btec course combined and these hybrid courses are increasingly of interest to local youngsters.
