Cannock Chase High School is a vibrant and ambitious learning community with a relentless focus on the highest standards of academic achievement, personal development and equality of opportunity
Headteacher Iain Turnbull said: “In everything we do we are dedicated to reaching our school goal – ‘Achievement for All’.
“Our school has a positive ethos, with strong pastoral and academic guidance and a real emphasis on learning.
“As a school we have a real focus on improving our collective best. All students are aware of their potential and that achievement is without limit if they combine effort, hard work and dedication to being the best in everything they do.
“We believe it is a happy, safe and enjoyable place to be with a purposeful atmosphere, and that the learning environment we provide allows students to grow and develop academically, socially and personally into responsible, caring and confident young people.
“We are a traditional school where old fashioned values of discipline, courtesy and good manners support our drive for academic success for every child.
We aim to achieve the very best results from every single student academically and prepare them for the world of work.
“Everybody involved in our school, from governors through to Year 7 students, have the highest expectations and work very hard to achieve these outcomes.
“We believe it is a happy, safe and enjoyable place to be with a purposeful atmosphere.”
“I am immensely proud to work with so many supportive governors, outstanding staff and delightful young people.
It is a privilege to be headteacher at Cannock Chase High School.”
Following an inspection earlier this year, the school was rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted.
The inspectors’ report stated: “The headteacher leads the school very effectively.
He has a clear vision based on a strongly-held set of values and a belief in a team approach.
He is focused on raising aspiration and wants every pupil to succeed in their chosen field.
“His energy, ambition and commitment are infectious and, as a result, he enjoys the wholehearted support of pupils, staff, parents and carers.
Many refer to the team culture that has been successfully established.”
The report went on to add: “Teachers have high expectations of pupils and develop very positive relationships.
Teachers check pupils’ understanding effectively and provide support and intervention when pupils fall behind.
“Pupils speak very highly of the support that is given, and appreciate the encouragement and belief that teachers show in them.
“Pupils are well prepared for the future. Last year, all pupils who left Year 11 went on to employment, education or training.”
