Apply to the Sixth Form

The Sixth Form at CHS is a new beginning with greater independence and personal responsibility, a more flexible timetable and a growing focus on life beyond CHS.

It is a time of significant personal development as students explore new interests, rise to the challenge of leadership and relish the academic rigour and tailored support that prepares them for university and beyond.



Entry Information

Our experience in recent years suggests that in order to be comfortable with the academic pace of A Level / Pre-U study at CHS students require an attainment level equivalent to 56 points (from 9 subjects) in their GCSE / iGCSE exams. Subjects graded 9-1 are allocated points equal to the number grade awarded. We use this as a guide to suitability, not an immovable requirement.

In addition to the point score, key factors in determining likely success in the Sixth Form are a student’s proven commitment to academic study and Sixth Form subject choices which build on the their academic strengths. Specific advice about the level of GCSE performance recommended by each department can be found on the department page on the website. It is advisable to check each subject carefully as some do specify a 9-7 grade as a minimum. We understand initial subject choices are provisional and we are very happy to offer advice regarding subject combinations. We try very hard to acommodate all subject combinations. 

All offers of places to join the Sixth Form will be conditional on final GCSE / iGCSE results in the August preceding entry and a positive School report.
