Sixth Form

“The majority of pupils leaving the School after Sixth Form progress to their first choice of university, often gaining entry to universities that have rigorous academic entry requirements.” ISI Inspection, April 2017

The Sixth Form experience at CHS is a dynamic one. Students explore new interests, rise to the challenge of leadership and relish the academic rigour and pastoral care that will prepare them for university and beyond.

Sixth Form students follow a dynamic pathways curriculum, which incorporates external speakers, academic extension and enrichment, careers guidance and work experience placements. Greater independence and personal responsibility, a more flexible timetable and a growing focus on the next step after School means that students move on from being children to young adults, making new friends and forming lasting relationships.

Our dedicated Sixth Form Centre provides students with the space they need to develop their independent working skills, as well as facilitating collaborative and project work.


Our Sixth Form Centre, which opened in September 2019, is a contemporary light and spacious building featuring a large independent area, spaces for both project work and silent study as well as a café and covered outdoor eating space.
