Why I Chose Chipping Campden School Sixth Form

"Having attended Chipping Campden School since year 7, some may see it as the ‘easy’ option to stay at the same school to study a levels, or question why I wasn’t ready to move elsewhere. When making my decision of what I should do after GCSEs, I knew that I wanted to go to an outstanding sixth form where I would be given the tools I needed to be able to succeed in my a level studies. I had witnessed the amount of success the sixth formers had had at Campden, and the accepting atmosphere that I had experienced throughout the lower school seemed to continue into the sixth form. Knowing that there would be continued support from teachers, students and other members of staff made the decision to return to CCS an easy one, without the need to even consider anywhere else. Since then, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here. There are so many opportunities to grow both academically and socially, as well as support for all needs being met. The teaching is excellent, the facilities encourage pastoral development and the students ensure a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, meaning we will all leave ready to embrace any challenges ahead.”

 

"At Chipping Campden, we are very lucky to have our very own purpose-built Sixth Form Centre. This includes a study room and a common room. The sense of community in the Sixth Form is one of the strengths of the school. There are loads of opportunities to be involved, including mentoring."

 

"Sixth Form at Chipping Campden not only provides an excellent start to Further Education but the additional bonuses and opportunities it provides make choosing Sixth Form all the more worthwhile. During my time in the Sixth Form, becoming a Senior Prefect then Deputy Head Boy opened up new avenues and possibilities and responsibilities for me to enjoy. Performing in the school play and contributing to the everyday life of the school, alongside my studies seems to have made the perfect balance, helped more so by the self-allocated time you are allowed. The sense of community and comradeship is overwhelming and there are always more friends to be made. All of this plus the excellent facilities available to students make Sixth Form all the more worthy of our choice. Make Sixth Form your choice after GCSE."

 

"A great place to study, learn and socialise, a friendly atmosphere and a tight-knit community."

 

"Sixth Form is an enjoyable time, although it's hard work. Everyone's really friendly and the teachers are 'human'. If you come back, it's really fun, so enjoy."

 

"I would recommend Sixth Form to all younger students. I'm currently in Year 12 and I am really enjoying it. It's quite different to GCSEs as it requires a greater commitment and the work is obviously much more difficult, however it's manageable as long as you find the balance between enjoying the freedom and putting in the effort."

 

"Campden has offered so many valuable opportunities which shape our future and personalities. It's a bubbly, exciting and invigorating learning environment and I am proud to be part of it."
