Our Academy

underpin all of our thoughts, words and actions within the school.

We are proud of an inclusive school community that promotes equality and an environment where diversity is regarded as positive and everyone can feel that they are able to express their viewpoints and beliefs in safety.

The British Values of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs are embedded throughout the school experience. Our active Junior Leadership plays a large role in exemplifying these values, as does our House system in the numerous charity events and activities that take place.

Students engage intellectually with controversial and contemporary issues through PSHE tutorials and the large number of educational trips and visits that take place. The values and ethos of the school make it a truly special environment to study and work in.


We hope you will be struck as you walk through the corridors at CHS by the high level of academic buzz and intellectual curiosity. These characteristics are palpable. Students and staff alike come in each day with a desire and intent to stretch themselves and share their fascination for their subjects. A love of learning for its own sake is at the heart of every lesson and, indeed, conversation.

This ethos is key to preparing our students for life.  


CHS seeks to impart or provide:

  1. a love of learning for its own sake
  2. an enthusiasm for the world beyond the classroom
  3. respect for difference in others and a recognition that the efforts and achievement of every individual in our community are valued equally.
  4. an excellent education which gives each and every student the very best chance of securing opportunity
