About Us

Upton-by-Chester High is a highly successful, 11-18 co-educational High School with over 200 staff and 1750 students on roll. We are located just over 2 miles from Chester city centre.

Our mission statement is 'Learning to Shape the Future' and we strive to ensure all our learners achieve not just academic excellence, but also leave our school ready to take their place in the world of the future.

Our range of both enrichment opportunities and extra-curricular activities is second to none. Please have a look at our Engage@Upton page for further information. We have International School status, awarded by the British Council, which provides excellent opportunities for experiences with our partner schools around the world. Our sporting facilities are superb and cater for a range of sports. 

We are excited to confirm that the school has been selected for a major rebuilding programme over the next couple of years.  This will further transform the facilities that we have available to us as a school.  Planning is currently underway and will take place throughout 2022-23.  We will keep you updated.
