Cheslyn Hay Academy
Cheslyn Hay Academy is an 11 to 18 comprehensive school of approximately 1300 students including 190 in the Sixth Form. Our large catchment area includes the villages of Cheslyn Hay, Essington and Featherstone and we have a long tradition of taking students from further afield. The school has acquired a strong reputation for enabling the young people in our care to flourish.
We believe that high expectations lead to high levels of achievement. Therefore, we set high standards for our staff and students. Our teachers and support staff members are well qualified and very committed to their work. The students are polite, pleasant and enjoyable to teach. We receive excellent support from our parents and the local community. As a school we work closely with our primary schools and other local high schools in the areas as well as having excellent relationships with a number of universities and the local businesses.
High expectations and high achievement rely upon a positive working environment based upon respect. For us, respect means, unconditional positive regard for everyone in our learning community. A strong moral purpose and ensuring that the whole child is developed enables students to grow into independent, responsible young adults who are able to progress to their future career. At Cheslyn Hay Academy we strive to ensure that every lesson counts, for every child, every day. This is both in and outside the classroom. We expect teachers to deliver engaging lessons that ensure students are making good progress. For this to happen, positive behaviour must enable every teacher to teach and every child to learn. We expect students to come ready each day to challenge themselves to be the best they can be. We have a wide variety of extracurricular activities to help children develop all their skills and talents and there are many opportunities to develop their leadership skills within school.
