We are delighted to announce our recent success during the TES School Awards 2021.

TES Creative School of the Year

TES Wellbeing and Mental Health Award

The TES Schools Awards are a fantastic way to celebrate our community.

They provide a prestigious recognition for the dedication, hard work, resiliency and optimism of our dedicated staff, amazing students and their wonderful parents/ carers.

National recognition for our achievements, alongside the awe-inspiring efforts of fellow schools and teachers, has filled us with enormous pride. The categories we have won; Creative School of the Year and Wellbeing and Mental Health, are especially pertinent as they form the foundational core of the vision for our educational community.

We have experienced huge changes to the ways we teach, how our students learn and the challenges they face, but throughout, we have stood together and we continue to thrive.

As always, our success is your success, and we thank you for your support.



Judges commended Chorlton High School for its tireless efforts to raise awareness of the plight of refugees. Our annual 'Choose Love' show raises vital funds and awareness of the ongoing crisis. Year 7 students make a pledge to support and continue the valuable work carried out by their peers in older year groups.

“Chorlton’s Choose Love creative projects are truly outstanding, inspiring and an example to all.” 

- Mike Fairclough, TES Award Judge




Judges praised Chorlton High School for the way wellbeing was “woven into the fabric of the school”.

Innovative ways had been found to prioritise the wellbeing and mental health of students and staff, particularly during the Covid pandemic, including increased participation in cultural and social activities as well as creative opportunities.

“Chorlton High School is a great winner of the wellbeing and mental health award. It was clear that wellbeing was not limited to a standalone project but woven into the fabric of the school."

“The authenticity of its submission was backed up by its website, where its core values of a ‘successful, creative, happy’ school shone through. The breadth and wealth of its wellbeing work was stunning and the judges particularly loved its goosebump-inducing Human Family video.”

- Tara Porter, TES Award Judge
