Chichester High School For Boys

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Chichester High School for Boys, or CHSB, was a boys' secondary school with academy status, located in the city of Chichester, West Sussex, England. It was formed in 1971 during the schools reformation act of the 1970s by the amalgamation of two established schools; The Lancastrian School (established 1895) and the High School for Boys (established 1929). In 2016, Chichester High School for Boys merged with Chichester High School for Girls, to become just Chichester High School. This occurred after speculation that the two schools would merge, starting from 2014. The new school would adopt purple as its main color, replacing the previous boys' school green and girls' school navy.


The Boys and Girls High Schools have merged, so the uniform has changed as of 2016.

Since the boys' and girls' schools merged in 2016 purple blazers are worn, along with purple ties, with stripes of each house color.[1]


The school's sporting facilities included an international-standard irrigated all-weather hockey pitch, sports hall, tennis courts and grounds for sports such as rugby, cricket, hockey, tennis, squash, athletics, basketball, football, and badminton. A sports centre was completed in 2009.

The Sixth Form was divided into Year 12 and Year 13. It was jointly managed by both CHSB and CHSG. Sixth Formers enjoyed privileges, including their own common room, reading room and kitchen. Members of the Sixth Form were not required to wear school uniform.

Combined Cadet Force

The school operated a Combined Cadet Force Its Army section was affiliated with the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment and an RAF section but no Navy section due to an agreement at the time of the formation with the local Sea Cadets.

Old Cicestrians

The school alumni society is called the Old Cicestrians. For some time it was called the Chichester High and Lancastrian Old Boys, or CHALOBs, but reverted to the original name in 2007. In former times a magazine "The Martlet" was issued at the end of each school year as well as a full school photograph. Before converting to a comprehensive system there were eight houses: King, Story, Wilfred, Richards, Andrews, Lake, Bell and Sherborne at the grammar school, each based on a geographical area.

Houses, Communities and Colours.

Formerly each house was named after a Bishop of Chichester, They were: Blake (Yellow), Cawley (Green), Howard (Grey), Lancaster (White), Montgomery (Red), Norfolk (Purple), Richmond (Orange), Sherborne (Dark Blue), and Whitby (Sky Blue). A tenth house, known as "Osbourne", briefly existed during the 1960s.

Between 1956 and 1964 the houses were as follows: Andrews (black), Bell (scarlet), King (purple), Lake (lilac), Richards (green), Sherborne (yellow), Storey (blue), Wilfred's (crimson). Also named after bishops of Chichester.

Since the start of the term in 2011, the houses were renamed 'communities' after people who had an affiliation to the local area (West Sussex). There were five communities – Canute – Blue, Henry 1st – Red, Story – Yellow, Friar – Green, Bishop – Purple. The Bishop house was eventually dropped, leaving just the other four.

Ever since the two schools merged in 2016, new houses were created. These are Malala King - Blue, Redgrave - Red, Hawking - Yellow, and Rowling - Green. These names were determined by every student in each house voting.
