We are a vibrant, happy and very successful school. Our well-qualified, committed staff want to make a difference to the lives of our young people and will do all they can to ensure that every individual receives the very best educational experience.
Our ethos is built upon excellence in all that we do; our academic achievements at both GCSE and A Level are amongst the best in Cheshire West and Chester, and our extra-curricular offer is second to none.
I warmly invite you to visit us, to see for yourself what makes Upton-by-Chester High School such an exceptional place to learn.
Upton-By-Chester High School is an excellent school which provides an outstanding education.
Our care, guidance and support are also outstanding because students are known and treated as individuals (OfSTED).
At Upton we really get to know our students 'inside out' and ensure that their individual needs are not only met within the classroom, but also beyond. We nurture each individual and ensure that they are making the most of every opportunity available. Our students leave Upton as confident, mature, and extremely well-qualified young adults, ready to take their place in the world of the future.
Our ethos is built upon excellence - in progress and achievement; in learning; in effort; in pastoral support and care and in behaviour.
We are a school which provides wonderful opportunities for all of our students both at home and abroad - we are extremely proud of our prestigious International School Status, awarded by the British Council, in recognition of the outstanding opportunities available to our students and our many links across the globe.
We seek to educate the whole person and provide excellent opportunities in sport, music, the arts, technology, languages and leadership development both in the lower school and in the Sixth Form.
We have one of the largest and most successful Sixth Forms in Chester, enabling us to offer the widest possible range of courses and opportunities; most Upton students stay at the school for seven years to complete their education.
