At CHS we offer all students a broad, challenging and relevant curriculum that we hope will encourage them to become lifelong learners and contribute very well to their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Our curriculum is also personalised for each individual student so that they are able to pursue their interests and strengths. We encourage students to aim high and maximise their learning potential and this commitment is reflected in outstanding examination results.   

Our curriculum follows the normal path with students taking GCSEs in Year 11 and A Levels/AS Levels, BTECs and vocational courses at Sixth Form. In Year 9 students select their options for the subjects they would like to study in Year 10 and 11. We hold an Options Evening for students, parents and cares at the end of January (see our Key Dates), following which, all the infomation will be available to download to the right of the page.

To find out more about the curriculum our school is following, please contact our Headteacher, Mr Barlow, using the email link to the right of the page.

Other useful information to help students and their parents decide on the best courses for them can be found in our Careers Guidance Leaflet on our Careers and Education Guidance page.
