Chichester High School is top ten in West Sussex

A CHICHESTER school has broken into the top-ten achievement list of maintained schools in West Sussex.

Chichester High School for Boys announced its success, which is based on the most recent set of GCSE results.

Headteacher Gavin Salvesen-Sawh said he was ‘over the moon’.

The list, compiled at a county level, ranks schools by the number of students achieving five or more A* to C GCSE grades, including English and Maths.

Based on this list, which excludes independent schools, CHSB is now tenth in all West Sussex.

“We’re obviously over the moon in the sense of the school’s progress,” said Mr Salvesen-Sawh.

“We’re a rapidly improving school, as our results state.”

In addition, CHSB was one of only seven schools in West Sussex with a three-year upward trend of results.

Mr Salvesen-Sawh described the results as ‘fantastic news’.
