Caroline Chisholm School is an all-through school for students aged 4-19 and as such, students who are admitted in to the primary phase of the school, i.e. Reception Year or any subsequent primary year, automatically continue in to Year 7 without the need for parents to apply for a place. Places in Year 7 are allocated to all CCS Year 6 students.  Parents of CCS Year 6 students are, of course, free to apply for alternative Year 7 places if they wish to, via the Local Authority coordinated scheme for Year 7 admissions and should only include their chosen alternative school/s on their application.
