Welcome to Archbishop Temple Church of England High School

I am very pleased to welcome you to our website. Archbishop Temple Church of England High School is a high performing secondary school in Preston, Lancashire. We have 782 pupils, aged 11-16, and we aim to provide an outstanding education based firmly on our core values of faith, nurture and service.

Our pupils receive a first class education and our exam results are consistently among the best in the country. In 2023, 87% of our pupils achieved 5 good GCSE exams, including English and Maths. 

However, we aim to achieve much more than that. The school is a vibrant and exciting place to be. There is never a dull moment and we are proud of the extra-curricular provision that is available in school, as well as the exemplary pastoral care we offer our pupils. As a school, we aim to be a caring place, and work hard to ensure that we show our care to those who are members of the school, but also to people in the wider community. Our staff and pupils raise many hundreds of pounds each year to support good causes both locally, nationally and internationally.

Being a Church of England School is a core part of our ethos. We express our faith in regular acts of worship, but also by providing an inclusive and welcoming atmosphere where we make a commitment to each young person to try to support them to be the best they can be.
