This has been a very stressful year for A-Level students as this is the first year of the new linear courses and it has meant that predicting achievement was very difficult. So double congratulations to them for working hard, holding their nerve and achieving some of the best results Chichester High School has seen! Thank you to the staff, students, and parents for all their support, hard work and commitment, we wish our students every success and happiness in their future.
