Welcome to Chace Community School
I am proud to be Headteaacher at Chace Community. I am committed to ensuring that all students enjoy and achieve during their time at Chace so that they are:
successful – well equipped for further study, university, apprenticeships and ultimately the world of work
happy and fulfilled – forming positive relationships, enjoying new experiences, resilient and enjoying life
fit and healthy
Our Chace signposts give us a clear sense of direction as we aim to be an inviting, successful, learning community.
Commitment to learning – we’re all learners at Chace inspiring a love of learning for life, providing a high quality, challenging, broad and balanced education within a supportive pastoral system, in an inclusive, calm, purposeful learning environment.
High expectations – we set standards, expectations and aspirations high with excellent teaching for successful learning. We work in partnership with parents, valuing their support so students can be successful learners.
All can succeed – every student has talents and strengths which we celebrate while identifying and supporting areas for improvement.
Confidence and courage – we want all students to become responsible, independent, thoughtful adults who, having enjoyed learning at Chace, will be successful in their future lives.
Everyone valued equally – underpins all our work at Chace where no child is invisible, all are known by name and encouraged and supported to improve on present best and achieve beyond expectation whatever their starting point.
We are committed to working together to improve learning and teaching, to raise standards and raise achievement to enable all our students to be successful learners now and in future.
Chace Sixth Form provides a stimulating learning environment which will enable you to develop both socially and academically.
In particular, Chace offers you:
- an individually tailored timetable, agreed from a wide range of subjects and following on from Years 10 and 11 thus ensuring continuity.
- in most cases, studying in groups with teachers you already know.
- facilities separate from other year groups including a common room and a quiet study area.
- visits, activities and other events connected with your studies.
- a support programme providing advice and discussion on life and study skills and regular consultations on your progress with your Personal Tutor.
- the companionship of established friends.
- the opportunity to take on responsibilities both within and beyond the school community and so mature into a responsible young adult.
- experienced help to guide you through application procedures for colleges and universities.
- a strong careers advice and “jobs available” support system.
- references written by teachers who have known you for several years.
- social events arranged both by the school and by your own Sixth Form Committee; these have included end of term parties and the Sixth Form dinner-dance at the end of the year.
- above all, staff who CARE and who are ready to encourage, explain and at all times support you through your time as a Post-16 student.
The Youth Service operates an extensive voluntary service programme for our students. You will have the opportunity to choose from a very wide range of activities working with the young, the elderly, the able bodied and the disabled to gain additional experience, insight and understanding. You will be supported, it will be fun and in the end both you and the community will benefit from your involvement. You will also receive a certificate to add to your Record of
Achievement. We also have a large number of opportunities to become involved in voluntary work in school and we expect all Year 12 students to become involved in some of these activities in their study periods.
