The CHS Experience

As Waconians, pupils are offered an enriching educational experience and prepared for their path of choice through a rounded curriculum.

From Pre-School to Sixth Form, pupils learn together and independently and their broad timetables encompass all aspects of the wider CHS experience.

Through an Academic, Active and Altruistic curriculum, each learner is provided with opportunities to help them make the very best of their journey.

Our Academic curriculum challenges and encourages intellectual growth, ensuring each learner is equipped for success in their chosen pursuits. Meanwhile, our Active pillar extends far beyond the classroom and aims to nurture personal and social growth, leadership and a commitment to holistic wellbeing. 

We take pride in our Altruistic curriculum. Through outreach and community engagement opportunities, we instil in our pupils a sense of responsibility to others and the wider world around them. 

As the future is impossible to predict, pupils leave CHS ready to tackle all that lies ahead, whichever path they choose to explore or wherever their lives may take them. This ethos chimes with that of the original founders of the school in 1855.

Keeping values at its heart, the academic experience, pastoral care system and co-curricular programme all work together, maximising every pupil’s potential.
