Vision and Values

At Chorlton High School we are committed to providing high quality educational opportunities for our local community. 

Our vision is based on the belief that creativity is a vital component of lifelong learning. We nurture creativity and imagination throughout the school curriculum to help students discover the world, solve problems and visualise the future. These skills are as relevant to the scientist and the mathematician as they are to the musician or designer.

Our superb facilities ensure that students have every opportunity to excel in the Arts. The educational experience of our students is enriched throughout the year through master classes led by a number of professional Arts groups and establishments across the city, including the BBC Philharmonic and Royal Exchange Theatre.

Chorlton High School is built on and driven by our core values and we are committed to enabling all our students to become:
