For our students, learning is not confined to what takes place in lessons within the classroom. We aim to provide many extra opportunities for you to learn, and to develop your individual talents through real experience and responsibility.
Opportunities for learning include:
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 their achievements. We have high expectations of all our students and teachers, and we will never settle willingly for anything less than your personal best.
Student destinations in 2011 included Bristol, Leeds, Kings College London, Sheffield, Southampton & Warwick Universities- these are all part of the 'Russell Group' of top 20 Universities across the country.
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 beyond the compulsory stage. They want to communicate and share their knowledge and passion for their subject with you, 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, will support your learning, monitor your progress closely and help you to set targets to achieve maximum success. You will be helped to develop the independent learning skills necessary for success with us and at the next stage, whether that be Higher Education or employment.
With an A-Level A*-C pass rate of 68% and an A-E pass rate of 95% in 2011, a long-standing reputation for excellence in Vocational/Applied Courses and approximately two thirds of students progressing to Higher Education each year, we're confident that we have a recipe for success.
How much would you like to be a part of it? Over to you!

What the students have to say........
"The 6th form at Chalfonts gives you much more freedom as a young adult to take control of your learning. The relationships you can have with your subject teachers are much stronger and closer as they treat you like an adult. Now that you are in the 6th form you know you can go to your tutor or any other teacher with any type of problem and they will help and support you". Kiera Hawes - Year 12 student
"The 6th form is great because you are treated more like an adult. Lessons are interesting and stretch you. Teachers are always available to help and support you and I feel like a role model for younger students". Laura Skinner - Year13 student
"I wasn't looking forward to my first day at 6th form, as I find changing schools very hard. However, all the students and teachers are very welcoming, and within 24hours I was a different person and loved the school. The Chalfonts is a welcoming school; if you decide to come here for 6th form you will not regret it. Electra Webb - Year 12 student (new to the school)
