Welcome to Chelmer Valley High School

Chelmer Valley is a forward looking, ambitious and popular school.  We have high expectations of our students and ourselves.  We believe that the partnership between student, the school and home is crucial to the success of our community.

Our school has an extremely positive ethos where the quality of care, welfare and safety are excellent. Consequently students feel secure, have very good attitudes to learning and develop into mature, confident adults. It is our intention to ensure that every student is regarded as an individual and they are all encouraged to expect more of themselves.  This will allow them to feel that they are contributing to the development of the school as a whole.

We are committed to further improving the quality of education at Chelmer Valley.  We are all very proud of what we have achieved to date and I hope the website will give you an insight into our highly successful school.

About us

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.
