Welcome to Skerton Community High School.


Chris Snell - HeadteacherOur ethos has always been to nurture and enable talent, whilst encouraging all students to care about and support each other. We provide smaller class sizes, excellent vocational opportunities, a clean, well resourced, friendly, caring and an academically robust school that puts children first. We are flexible in our approach to education, allowing us to provide an appropriate curriculum for each pupil.We make it our business to know our pupils individually and work with them and their families to ensure that their potential is achieved.This environment truly nurtures the belief that “every child matters”.

Our most able students go on to study A levels and graduate from well respected universities, and all students benefit from small class sizes and a truly inclusive atmosphere.

Our committed and professional staff work hard to ensure that every child fulfils his or her potential , and we are proud to say that we are in the top 14% of schools nationally for adding value to our students' academic achievements. This means that not only do our highest achievers gain the A* grades they are capable of, but all of our students achieve more qualifications than they were predicted to achieve at entry.

At Skerton Community High School we know all our students as individuals, so talent and ability are never allowed to slip through the net but, equally importantly, we value the whole child, and we pride ourselves on turning out well rounded individuals, fully equipped for the future, whatever it may hold.
