Welcome to The Corsham School
Welcome to The Corsham School Prospectus. I hope you get a sense of the vibrancy of The Corsham School, the superb education we aim to give to every student and the wider opportunities we provide to enable all students to develop their talents. The Corsham School is an 11-18 comprehensive academy with just over 1200 students on roll. We are part of the Corsham School Academy Group Trust which consists of us and, one other school, Corsham Regis Primary Academy. We are situated in the beautiful Wiltshire market town of Corsham, within easy reach of Chippenham and Bath, and draw our students from within the town and its many surrounding villages. We aim to maximise potential as we continually strive to develop this school to be the best of the best. We will not stop our programme of continuous improvement. Our academic reputation is a great source of pride; however, our emphasis on developing the whole person is a fundamental part of the education we provide. As a school, we promote individuality, independence, and creativity. We aim to continue to be at the forefront of digital learning. We emphasise social, cultural, moral and spiritual development and we pride ourselves on developing responsible, tolerant, global 21st century citizens. We believe that school should be a happy place, students should enjoy learning; and teachers enjoy teaching. We believe that school is a place where you can make mistakes and learn from them and where kindness and good manners are as important as academic success. We are incredibly proud of the achievement and aspiration of our students; the way that our students throw themselves into the vast selection of extra-curricular opportunities; the way that they look after each other; and their positive attitude to learning and exemplary behaviour. Students leave us to take their place in an ever-changing world and we make sure they are as prepared as possible for all the challenges they will face. The majority of our students stay with us into our 6th Form before progressing on to University with many going on to top universities including Oxford and Cambridge. Our staff are highly committed, innovative professionals. Relationships between staff and students are exceptionally strong and this ethos is built on trust and confidence underpinned by the support of our wonderful families. We believe that education is a three-way partnership between students, parents and the school and seek to work with you to help your children discover and achieve their full potential and future dreams. I hope that these pages will give you a flavour of the caring, successful and vibrant community that we are. You will find more information about the school on our website but please do not hesitate to contact the school if you would like more information but the best way to find out more is to come and see for yourself. Visitors are always welcome and we will be happy to show you around should you wish to pay us a visit. Rod Bell Headteacher
Corsham6th has its own dedicated area in the school. The Corsham6th Centre is the social centre, complete with its own facilities including a café area and relaxation terrace. There is also an independent study room and many students make excellent use of the school library in their study periods.
We are very proud of the huge array of enrichment opportunities that we offer all Corsham6th students. These range from fantastic sporting opportunities to a selection of community volunteer tasks and of course work experience. At Corsham, enrichment is not simply organised free time, but a genuine built in curriculum requirement that has been researched independently and approved as perfect for University progression and career building. Some of these experiences include sessions with Amnesty International, World class Art venues as well as teaching our elderly neighbours functional social media skills.
