The Sixth Form offers a range of Level 3 courses including A-Levels and BTEC qualifications. Most students take three AS courses or equivalent subjects in Year 12, continuing them to A2 Level in Year 13. A small selection of students begin with four AS Levels, dropping one of them at the end of Year 12. Students have five lessons per week for all Level 3 subjects.
Any student who fails to achieve a C grade in GCSE English and/or GCSE Maths and wishes to continue into KS5 will be supported in resitting the qualification during Year 12.
All students are supported by a group tutor in personal development and progression (including guidance in completing applications for UCAS and employment). Assemblies and Tutor Time are utilised to address Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural learning.
What the students have to say........
I have been at The Chalfonts since Year 7 and I am currently studying English, Psychology and Geography in Year 13. This school has given me a variety of opportunities throughout my early years and has continued to do so in the sixth form. The teaching is outstanding and there is no teacher who wouldn't go that extra mile to ensure that you achieve everything you are capable of. I have enjoyed every minute of my time here and will be sad to leave all the amazing staff, friends and facilities our school has to offer. Jess Keyes, Yr 13 student
As an external student who had achieved good grades at GCSE, I decided to apply to The Chalfonts Community College due to the wide variety of subjects on offer and the fantastic past results. Since joining the sixth form, the other students have made me feel extremely welcome and I have settled in very well. I am confident that I will achieve my full potential and look forward to Year 13 as the teachers continue to support me. Rhianna Conway, Yr 13 student
I chose to stay on at The Chalfonts as I have always felt so happy and at home here. The teachers deliver a high standard of lessons and I believe that this school can help me achieve my aspirations. Furthermore, the sixth form has provided me with numerous personal development opportunities and has always supported me throughout my studies. Charlie Merrett, Yr 13 student
I chose to say at The Chalfonts for sixth form and have found it to be somewhere that an individual can expand their knowledge and gain skills for the future. The support that students get from teachers in this school is incredible and it is an enjoyable atmosphere all-round. The relationships with the teachers in the sixth form makes the lessons more engaging and fun. The school provide plenty of opportunities for personal development which will contribute greatly to my university application. Jared Genido, Yr 12 student
Since I started at The Chalfonts in Year 7 I have enjoyed every moment of it. Our great sports teams have given me the opportunity to participate to a high standard with great coaches to help. Every teacher that I have ever had has been willing to talk and go over any queries to ensure my success. I am proud and happy to say that I go to The Chalfonts Community College and that is why I decided to stay on into the sixth Form. Llewelyn Woodman, Yr 12 student
I chose to stay on at The Chalfonts for sixth form because I knew this school could offer me the support I wanted in order to reach my full potential. I have already had lots of support from the teachers in the subjects I have taken (Geography, Performing Arts and Media); after being here for nearly 6 years I knew this would be right for me and I don’t regret my decision.
