We continually strive to create a community where all our staff and students feel understood, valued and sense of belonging.
Working at CHS South
CHS South is a 11-16 eight-form entry, mixed, comprehensive school opened in conjunction with Chorlton High School in 2018. Our school provides a full capacity of 1200 in our brand new building which opened in September 2021.
We provide an education built on the values of offering every young person we encounter the skills needed to craft a creative, happy and successful future. We ensure the young people at CHS South have access to a broad and forward thinking enrichment curriculum. We are well positioned to offer a diverse and engaging sports curriculum through our fantastic relationships with the vast array of sports providers in our community. Furthermore our expertise and understanding of the creative arts, ensures our young people are provided with the opportunities to develop and hone their skills in order to become the next generation of creative trailblazers.
We received our first Ofsted inspection in January 2023 and were graded as ‘good’ in all areas.
We are committed to recruiting and retaining outstanding practitioners onto our teaching and our support teams to ensure that our students achieve their very best and are led by happy, dedicated and highly skilled staff.
Committed to ensuring ongoing training and personalised development for all staff, we deliver an exciting calendar of CPD training events; active and motivating sessions focused on Teaching and Learning, student attainment and staff well-being. We use the Annual Appraisal Cycle to ensure that all professional development is designed to meet the needs of our staff, whatever stage of their career they may be at and whether they are teaching or support staff.
Here at CHS South we recognise that ensuring success for students also means ensuring success for staff and we have worked very hard on our ‘Happiness’ agenda – delivering training for staff and students on ‘how to be happy and resilient’. There are a range of processes and procedures in place, designed to make life easier for our staff and we have structure in place to report to Governors on ways in which staff would like their well-being to be improved. From a state-of-the-art hot drinks machine in the staff room, to social events, to Line Management meetings, we recognise that through working as a team and having open lines of communication we can all thrive.
