Headteacher, Ellen Walton said: "So much brilliant work goes on inside the school we want to make sure the front reflects this.
"The money will allow us to make changes and install new windows at the front and a new roof."
The school is one of 1,129 academies, sixth-form colleges and voluntary aided schools nationwide who have shared £498 million of CIF funding in this latest round of funding.
A total of 1,405 projects across the country will now be completed thanks to the CIF funding, including the projects at Sandbach High School and Sixth Form College.
