About Bishop Heber High School
Bishop Heber High School (the ‘Heber’) has 1300 students, including over 250 in the Sixth Form, and serves three villages and surrounding hamlets in this beautiful area of south-west Cheshire. The School is located a 20 minute car journey from Nantwich, Wrexham and Chester. It has easy access to the Wirral as well as North Shropshire. The School enjoys an excellent reputation in the locality and a large number of families choose Bishop Heber from outside the catchment area. In fact, there are over 450 students on roll who come from other parts of Cheshire, Shropshire and North Wales. In 2015 the School underwent a £5 million redevelopment of the site and there are strong community links through the School’s Library and sports facilities, including a brand-new Community Fitness Suite, Astroturf pitch and resurfaced Netball courts.
In the Main Findings of the recent Report, Ofsted stated that Heber… ‘is an outstanding school, with an outstanding sixth form… Students achieve exceptionally well in their academic studies and benefit from an excellent curriculum and from outstanding care, guidance and support in everything they do’.
The School’s impressive results were reflected in Ofsted’s observations that: ‘Academic guidance is exemplary in Key Stage 4 and in the Sixth Form... The combination of high attainment and good progress means that achievement is outstanding’.
The Sixth Form at Heber has grown significantly in recent years and it was observed during the inspection that… ‘Teaching is good overall and often outstanding. Students are set challenging targets and are given detailed advice on how they can reach them. Assessment is exemplary and any possible underachievement is identified rapidly and addressed immediately. There is a good range of traditional academic courses’.
