We are an academically successful 11-18 school, compromising approximately 1,500 students. The campus is located within in the beautiful city of Chichester and is set in large and pleasant grounds. The sixth form is judged to be outstanding and is located on the site.
Ours is a friendly, caring school with a reputation for high academic achievement – our results at GCSE and A-Level place us in the top performing schools in west Sussex. Our results are well above the national average and we are very pleased with the number of students leaving to go on to university. Each year we have students gaining places at Oxford and Cambridge along with other leading higher education institutions. Sixth Form students receive outstanding guidance on how to make successful applications.
Our students in Years 7-11 follow the National Curriculum in their lessons and also have a wide range of excellent extra-curricular experiences to choose from within the local, national and international community.
Our students come from a wide range of primary schools and therefore it is vital that we ensure each student’s transition is carefully and thoughtfully managed. we are proud of how quickly and successfully our new Year 7 students make the move to the High School and settle in very well. we have a dedicated transition team which ensures that every student has the best chance of an excellent start at CHS.
