Year 8 Options Process & Careers Fair - Thursday 21st March
At CHSG we are committed to working together to ensure that students' GCSE choices are appropriate and the process of choosing them is as informed and stress free as possible.
The Options Evening for parents and students is on Thursday 21st March at 6.30-8.30pm. During the evening staff from the different option subjects will be available to explain what their courses involve and to answer any questions parents and students might have. As well as the subject leaders the Senior Leadership Team will be present to address any concerns.
Year 8 students have been given their options packs which include a book with the details about the process and an options form that needs to be returned by Wednesday 3rd April. This outlines the choices available and information on how to make these choices. After the Options Evening we will be inviting all Year 8 parents and students to attend an individual meeting with a member of the Senior Leadership Team or the Year 8 Pastoral Team. These meetings will take place during the week commencing 25th March when parents will be able to book a slot via the parents’ evening portal. During this meeting students will be given individual guidance about their GCSE choices.

CHSG Careers Fair
The CHSG Careers Fair 2019 will also be held on Thursday 21st March from 6.00pm to give parents and students the opportunity to meet with businesses and careers advisors.
We are very pleased that we have over 40 employers from a broad spectrum of careers present to promote and explain their career paths together with a number of agencies who can advise on career opportunities. We are inviting parents, carers and students from all year groups to come along and meet with these professionals in order to gain an insight into their profession and what pathways they took to get there.
Attending this Careers Evening may help students to make informed University choices and/or inspire them towards a future career, which in turn may influence the GCSE courses they choose.
As always, we look forward to meeting parents and students in Years 8 to 13 at this event.
In response to the huge success of the 2018 fair, one of our employers' commented:
As a mum to a daughter in Year 4 the event was of personal as well as professional interest to me. The girls I met were a real credit to the school without exception. They were all polite, enthusiastic and engaged and I was asked some intelligent questions about a career that many of them had never heard of before. In fact the conversations were varied, from a 12 year old girl who is considering being a primary school teacher to a sixth former (I think) who has not only decided that she wanted to be a Doctor but has already mapped out that she wants to specialise in Gynaecology and work in developing countries where she can be of more help - what focus and determination.
The pupil who made the chocolate brownies also deserves an A* in Food Tech, they were so delicious I was tempted to see if I could take some home with me.
We would happily attend another event when you hold it.
