We are delighted and proud to celebrate the achievements of students and staff at Chichester High School, with some impressive GCSE and BTEC results.
This has been a challenging two years for the 2023 cohort, and so many of our students have worked hard to achieve their potential.
Headteacher Alaric Govan said, “This has been a team effort and I would like to commend the hard work of staff, parents and students. This school has a very distinctive community feel to it and I would like to thank our incredible staff for their hard work and exceptional pastoral care.
The parents and carers have been incredibly supportive, for which I am incredibly grateful.
Finally, and always most importantly, the Year 11s have worked exceptionally hard. They have attended sessions before and after school, as well as during the holidays. They have engaged with the online packages that the school has brought in to encourage additional study, and their determination and commitment was evident throughout the month of examinations. They should be very proud of their achievements.”

Today this historic year group deserve all the medals. We were thrilled to see many of our students return to school today to receive their GCSE results.

I hope you celebrate your performance with your families. You are all amazing.”

After this successful transition event, we are now looking forward to welcoming so many of them to our Sixth Form in September where we will be able to continue to support them. It will be a record-breaking year for recruitment into our Sixth Firm and we could not be more delighted.
