A Message from the Headteacher

Welcome to Cantonian High School’s website. 

We are an 11-18 school, with a thriving Sixth Form, and are very proud of our track record of school improvement. Our results speak for themselves, and you can read all about our amazing success stories in the “news” section on the home page. In our picture gallery you will see our students receiving cups, prizes and certificates at our annual Awards Evening, and also in the picture gallery, a highlight for our sixth form – their “Prom”, which is held annually, just before A level examinations.

The staff at Cantonian work incredibly hard to ensure that all pupils fulfil our vision of “the best from each, success for all”. We believe that well-being is at the heart of every child’s success story and we have a variety of systems in place to support those who need it. Our philosophy is that every young person in the school can succeed, whether they are academic high-flyers, inclined towards vocational subjects, pupils with additional needs, or those who need extra nurture at a crisis point in their lives.

A variety of after-school opportunities and other extra curricular events is available, ranging from extra sessions in exam subjects to sporting activities to homework club in the Learning & Media Resource Centre.

We work closely with our partner primary schools and our local “cluster” schools, with whom we co-operate at Key Stages 4 and 5 to ensure that the vast majority of young people can follow their chosen subjects.

If your child attends Cantonian at the moment, then you know most of this anyway, but if you are reading this with a view to sending your child to us, either at Year 7 or as a later entrant to the school, then we hope that you find all the information you need on this site. If you require further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
