Why Choose Chelmer Valley Sixth Form?

  1. Challenge – we challenge our students to be the best and do their best. Students are expected to work hard and will be rewarded for their hard work with good grades that provide the best possible foundation for further education / workplace.
  2. Vibrant – the Sixth Form is a vibrant one. Students are involved in lots of extra-curricular activities (football/ paired reading/ performing arts). Students are provided with a number of opportunities to extend their learning outside of the classroom – theatre visits, field trips, foreign visits, conferences.
  3. Happy – a successful student is one that is happy in their surroundings. Friendly faces, supportive staff and a purpose built building.
  4. Support – we are able to provide a bespoke support service for our students. We look after their emotional wellbeing. Students who may be struggling are offered advice and guidance. A CVHS Sixth Former is one in 200 as opposed to 1 in 1000s (at college). We know most of you already (or will get to know you better). Careers guidance and applying for university are all given high priority.

There is a document available on the Sixth Form Life page to help support your son/daughter whilst they are at Sixth Form.
