Sixth Form Curriculum

Our students are encouraged to explore their academic interests through extension classes and extended project work, alongside their core academic subjects.

Smaller class sizes enable students to engage wholeheartedly with their academic study and allow Form Tutors to know each student as an individual, providing them with tailored advice regarding university choices and life after CHS.

  • 100% pass rate at A Level
  • A Value Added education; students can expect to achieve at least half a grade higher in every subject than projected
