Curriculum intent

Our motto at Chichester High School is ‘Enjoy, Endeavour, Excel,” 

All of our students ENJOY high-quality, inspirational and innovative teaching. All students EXCEL in ways they didn’t believe possible and our students ENDEAVOUR to be excellent 21st-century global citizens. It is this final key term ‘Endeavour' that underpins our approach to STEM in education. 

Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics- four subjects that play a critical role in our local communities' growth, stability, and future. These subjects build the foundations of many careers. 

At CHS we have established four key aims we hope to achieve for our students: 

  • To develop our students to be critical thinkers

  • To help nurture STEM knowledge with the skills to thrive in those subject areas 

  • Encourage the next generation of innovators 

  • Work with our students to develop an interest in STEM-related subjects for their post 16 options and future careers. 

We promote this in a range of ways. Students have access to a balanced curriculum that incorporates STEM subjects. At KS3 all students study; Science, Maths, and technology. At KS4 students have a variety of optional subjects that offer courses that specialise in STEM areas, for example; Triple Science, Product Design, Maths, Catering and Hospitality, and Textiles. 

We also offer STEM-related events in school for our students, such as a Halloween-themed event. Students have had opportunities to attend STEM-related trips such as CERN hadron collider in Switzerland. We have previously worked with local primary schools to host an eco summit with the ‘Eye Project’ on sustainable living. Our food technology department offers an after-school cooking club. Our science department offers an Eco-club in the summer term, looking at sustainability in our school. 

We are looking forward to welcoming our students back into our STEM building where we hope to inspire the next generation of innovators, mathematicians, scientists, and engineers.
