Headteacher’s Welcome

I am very proud of our school, our Christian Ethos, strong values and high academic standards, all of which support the very highest expectations we have of our students. Our results in 2016 ensured we were one of the most improved schools in the country, and we were judged as a ‘Good’ school with ‘Outstanding’ Leadership and Management during our SIAMS inspection in 2017. We had record results in 2018 and we are very proud of the trajectory we are on – always looking to improve year on year.

Sir Thomas Boteler Church of England High School was founded in 1526 and we became a Voluntary Aided Church of England High School in 2002. We serve the Diocese of Liverpool and Chester and have a Christian Ethos founded upon Anglican beliefs and practices. We are nationally recognised for putting our Christian values into action. We are a founder member of The Challenge Academy Trust (TCAT) and lead on Faith, Ethics, Vision and Values across the Trust. We formally became an academy in June 2017.

We place our young people at the centre in all we do, investing in them so they feel encouraged and motivated to excel, through our belief in ‘High Expectations, High Aspirations, High Standards – You will succeed’.

Our vision, values and ethos underpin our Boteler Family and all aspects of school life because ‘Through God, We Care’. Our whole school community is relentless in the pursuit of excellence and is committed to raising standards so that every student reaches their full potential.

The strong moral purpose at Sir Thomas Boteler Church of England High School is to develop the whole child, both academically and pastorally. We equip students with the skills, knowledge and understanding needed for lifelong learning in an ever-changing society. We will inspire, support and challenge our students, ensuring they attain academic excellence.

Our door is always open, so please come and visit us during a working school day, as this is when you will be able to see us in action and to make an informed decision.  

Beverley Scott-Herron, Headteacher

Community: We respect all members of the school and wider community and celebrate our differences. We strive to serve the needs of others.

Child: We show that every child is loved by God and valued by all. We strive to meet their social, spiritual, educational and physical needs.
