Admissions and Course Information
The Sixth Form Curriculum comprises a broad range of traditional Advanced Level qualifications as well as BTEC courses.
All A level courses from September 2021, are two years in duration with the whole of the assessment taking place at the end of Year 13. Vocational courses are also a two year commitment.
Oxbridge and Russell Group
For those students wishing to apply for either a competitive entry university or course, we ensure that students are fully supported throughout the application and interview process.
Students need to be aware that some popular degree courses (such as Law, Dentistry, Veterinary Science, Medicine and entry into Oxbridge) require them to sit additional tests, which need to be organised by students themselves that wish to access these courses before the end of Year 12.
A number of these popular degree courses at competitive universities have an early application deadline of October. Students who may wish to apply to these universities will be identified early and will work with specialist staff led by Miss Bevan in an 'Early Application' Mentor Group to ensure they are fully prepared for their application.
Through this group students will have access to the following support:
- 1:1 support with personal statements and interview preparation
- Workshops delivered by experienced external speakers
- Access to the cross-trust Oxbridge programme, bringing together students from across the three trust schools in subject specific groups to discuss and debate academic ideas and material.
- A one-to-one mock interview and personalised feedback a few weeks prior to the interview at Oxford or Cambridge.
- Numerous ‘drop-in’ opportunities Miss Bevan.
Course information is available from the selection of courses in the menu to the right of this page. New courses include BTEC Criminology, A Level Religious Studies and Economics.
Enrolment for Sixth Form
Students who have applied and met the required entry criteria for their chosen courses will be accepted into CHSG Sixth Form.
We are proud of our outstanding care, guidance and support for Sixth Form students.
We have a clear framework for learning and students are tracked and monitored throughout their time with us. We use a variety of data and information. Students also benefit from a range of links we have with outside agencies.
We aim to keep tutor groups small. Most tutors will stay with their tutor group through Years 12 and 13. The tutor undertakes a number of roles in offering advice and guidance to help students settle in quickly and enjoy their time with us. In Year 12 tutors will also take on academic mentoring, which includes regular one to one reviews of progress to maximise achievement.
The tutor together with our Careers Coordinator supports students in making the right decisions about career choices and applications for Higher Education or employment.
The enrichment programme contributes strongly to sixth formers' confidence and personal development.
