Chapel-en-le-Frith High School is a mixed gender comprehensive school in Chapel-en-le-Frith in the county of Derbyshire, England. It serves pupils aged 11 to 16 from the town, from nearby Whaley Bridge, and the surrounding towns and villages.
The school has described itself as a specialist mathematics, science and technology college. The school has achieved National Healthy Schools status, the Sportsmark, Artsmark, Inclusion Quality Mark and the International Schools, Eco-Schools and Investors in People awards.
The building is owned and maintained by Initial Facilities Management, whose Eden Foodservice provide the catering.
The school was established in 1952 as Long Lane Comprehensive. It has since been renamed Chapel-en-le-Frith County Secondary School, and finally Chapel-en-le-Frith High School. In 2005 the school relocated to the other side of Long Lane, and the former site was redeveloped as the school's sports fields. The school is housed in a specially built one-piece building.
In 2013, 69% of the school's students achieved at least five A*–C GCSE results including maths and English. This was significantly above the averages nationally and for the Derbyshire Local Education Authority, 60% and 59.1% respectively. It does not have a sixth form, although it does have an adult education programme.
The school uniform is a white polo shirt with the school motto ("Striving for Excellence") on the chest, a red stripe on the collar and sleeves; a black sweatshirt with the school emblem, and black trousers. It used to be a classic shirt-and-tie uniform, but changed when the school moved into the new building.
Special needs department
The department has a selection of specially trained staff who work full-time on the department undertaking special lessons with those pupils who have been deemed to need support.
Every year, the school holds an event called the STEM (Science, TEchnology and Maths) day where there are different displays and events relating to science. Some popular activities are building paper rockets and cooking.
