We are delighted that you are considering Congleton High School for your child’s next step in education. Most students join CHS in Year 7 but we welcome boys and girls at any stage of their academic career, from Year 7 to 11 and also into our Post 16 provision at Year 12 or 13.

We are a non-selective Academy School and, as such, we welcome applications from all students, regardless of background, academic ability, aptitude, gender or religion. We have an admissions number of 200 in each year group, together with 50 places for external candidates wishing to join our Post 16 provision. 

We welcome prospective students and their parents to come and view the school, meet our staff and students and see first-hand what a vibrant and exciting place Congleton High School is.  The dates of our next Open Evenings are as follows:
