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 have an admissions number of 200 in each year group, together with 50 places for external candidates wishing to join our Post 16 provision.
