A levels 2021 80As Headteacher of Chichester High School, I am immensely proud of the time, care and sheer hard work that these Sixth Form students and their teachers have put into securing this year’s superb outcome. With ever-changing guidance and obstacles caused by COVID, we have never ceased in our aspirations for our young people or stopped ensuring they were challenged and supported to be their very best.


These results ensure our students have a wide range of aspirational pathways to be the engineers, medical professionals, academics, teachers, and change makers of tomorrow.

Our Head of Sixth Form, Ms Smith, has continuously ensured both whilst pupils were in school and learning from home that our pupils have remained part of our Sixth Form community, supported, informed and championed.  

Vickie Smith says, “I cannot express how proud I am of each and every one of our Year 13 students. Their commitment, dedication and work ethic has resulted in outstanding outcomes, which are fully deserved. I would like to thank the teaching and support staff for the care and outstanding provision that they have offered our students during this challenging year and the parents for their ongoing encouragement and support.  It has been an absolute privilege to work with such inspiring individuals, myself and all of the teachers at CHS wish them all the best for the future; we look forward to hearing about their many adventures.”

We wish all our students the very best on their next steps and look forward to hearing about their future successes
