The Sixth Form at The Chalfonts Community College offers the opportunities for everyone to prepare you for your next steps, whether that is in Higher Education, Employment or Training. We prepare you for the next part of your journey and the range of courses and enrichment is all about you; courses for you; opportunities for you. What we are immensely proud of is the continued success rate of our students, with courses delivered by dedicated teachers.
We are committed to a range of both academic and vocational courses because we believe this is what suits our students. The majority of you will have worked with us over the last five years; the next two years are a continuation of that.
Our Sixth Form was deemed ‘Outstanding’ in our previous Ofsted inspection and we always try to maintain our outstanding standards. We will make sure that our students are on the right courses. After all, this is all about you. As Mr Way has said, our ethos is welcoming and friendly. I am immensely proud of our students and firmly believe that because we place our pupils first, your next two years with us will be both rewarding and challenging. The Chalfonts Community College is a fantastic place to learn and thrive and we truly believe that ‘success is an attitude’.
Sixth form students play a major part in determining the success of this school. We are immensely proud of our current students, their predecessors and all of their achievements. We have high expectations of both students and teachers and we never settle for anything less than your personal best.
As a sixth form student you will be treated with respect. You will be trusted and will enjoy privileges and freedoms which are not given to younger students. In return, we expect you to be a mature, responsible young adult and a good role model for younger students.
Teachers enjoy working with sixth form students; they appreciate their maturity and the fact that they have chosen to continue their education. They want to communicate and share their knowledge and passion for their subject and will always go that extra mile to help and support you.
All students are allocated a group tutor. Your tutor will be concerned with your personal welfare; they will support your learning, monitor your progress closely and help you to set targets to achieve maximum success. You will also be helped to develop the independent learning skills necessary for success with us and for the next stage, whether that is Higher Education or employment.
Student destinations in the last three years include a wide range of universities such as Kings College, Exeter, Manchester, Southampton, the Royal Veterinary College and Brighton School of Medicine. With an A Level A*-B pass rate of 46% and an A*-E pass rate of 97%, plus a long-standing reputation for excellence in vocational courses we are confident that we have a recipe for success.
