Welcome to Chipping Campden School


Choosing the right Sixth Form is one of the most important decisions you will ever make and here at Chipping Campden School students thrive, both academically and personally, in a friendly, supportive and purposeful environment. Students who join the Sixth Form enjoy access to a purposebuilt study centre and a team of Learning Mentors and Heads of Year who challenge and support them as they progress through their courses. The Sixth Form is an active, outgoing and hardworking community of learners.

Any student who is successful in securing a place in our Sixth Form will enjoy positive relationships with teachers; high quality teaching with stretch and challenge for the most able; as well as a broad range of extra-curricular opportunities.

Providing students meet basic entry requirements, and those specific to particular subject areas, they are very welcome to join us and take full advantage of all that Sixth Form life here can offer.

Life in the Sixth Form is very different from year 11. In addition to having a purpose built Study Centre, students have an elected committee who help to run the Sixth Form and who are consulted on all aspects of school life. As young adults, who have elected to stay on in full time education, students need to rise to the challenge to manage their own learning through the use of non contact lessons, opting when to study and when to participate in enrichment activities.

The Sixth Form is an active and outgoing community who play a very important part in the life of Chipping Campden School and the wider community. Students need to be prepared to meet academic challenges, but also utilise the greater freedom that will be given in an industrious and worthwhile manner, taking advantage of the opportunity to develop leadership and teambuilding skills.
We are justifiably proud that our Post 16 students are ready to meet the challenge.

I do hope that you will join us.

Assistant Principal: Director of Learning - Head of Sixth Form
