Welcome to Dr Challoner's High School
WELCOME to the Sixth Form of Dr Challoner‘s High School.
Our aim is to make your time here challenging, stimulating, enjoyable and memorable. As you move towards becoming independent young women, we offer to support you in a variety of ways.
The Sixth Form at Dr Challoner‘s is committed to the goal of excellence - not only in academic work but also in our desire for every student to achieve their best in whatever field their strength lies. We will encourage you to stretch yourself and go on to the best possible future, whether it be in higher education or the world of work. Our courses are delivered by subject specialists with rigour and integrity and we believe in teaching students how to think analytically and independently. We value research and exploration. Teaching is a skill and as a school we invest in ensuring all staff are equipped to support students with a range of abilities and needs. We take the business of teaching and learning seriously.
We recognise that the demands and expectations of modern life can sometimes be harsh on young women, so we place a high value on offering you strong pastoral care throughout your time here. Whilst in our Sixth Form you will have our Deputy Director of Sixth Form and a professional counsellor to whom you can talk and our school Matron who is on hand throughout the school day. Most important though will be your form tutor whom you will see every morning and who will guide you throughout your time here. Your form tutor will lead your programme of PSHE studies, which covers a wide range of subjects from health to citizenship.
A Broad Curriculum
Alongside your A Levels and EPQ, you will have the option to have classes in additional subjects either to attain an additional qualification or skill. The current Year 12 attend a weekly lecture series and have had the choice of learning Italian or Russian, training as Sports Leaders or attending Music Appreciation classes.
As well as your studies, you will have many opportunities to take part in a wide range of activities. We pride ourselves on the range and standard of the sport on offer but you will also have a chance to choose from opportunities including drama, music, debate, Duke of Edinburgh, Raleigh International, Young Enterprise and spiritual fellowship. Overseas trips are regularly offered to the Sixth Form and these have recently included expeditions to Borneo, Germany, Dublin, Greece and Iceland. We encourage you to be active members of the wider community and to celebrate diversity and tolerance.
We invite you to join us.
