Principal's Welcome

Hello and welcome to Caroline Chisholm School,  

I hope this message finds you and your families safe and well, considering the current climate that we find ourselves in. This year we have all been faced with having to do things a little differently in all aspects of our lives and this has meant that, sadly, we are unable to open our doors to showcase our school and facilities in the usual way. 

However, I am immensely proud of my resilient and committed team who continue to work tirelessly, and have adapted to new ways of teaching and communicating with students and parents/carers.  

I am confident that you will find lots of information here about our school and the wonderful opportunities we have to offer you and I look forward to welcoming many of you into Sixth Form next year.  

Regards, 

David James
Principal


Introduction

Welcome to our Sixth Form 2021 Virtual Tour. On this page you will find a variety of useful information, including a brand new video showcasing what our Sixth Form has to offer, an introduction from our Head of Sixth Form, Mr Phil Ashton, and additional presentations, detailing the enrichment opportunities on offer, life in sixth form and some student testimonials. At the foot of this page you will also find subject-specific videos where you will find more information about all of the A Level subjects on offer. 

Choosing a sixth form can be an exciting time as students transition into adult life, but it can also be a daunting experience.  We regret that we have not been able to meet with you and your families this year in person but hope that you will find all the information you need here to help you to decide if Caroline Chisholm School is the sixth form for you!  

We look forward to welcoming many of you into school in September 2021.
