Chew Valley Sixth Form

We have a long history of success at Chew Valley.  Our students do extremely well in their examinations and go on to glittering careers at university and beyond. Every year our students achieve entry to the most prestigious universities in the UK including Oxford and Cambridge.

Our sixth formers are convinced they made the right decision in joining the sixth form.  Their comments can be heard throughout this prospectus.  Their voice is heard in the school at large through the Sixth Form Council.  Most importantly, they are making their mark through engagement in the school and wider community, through constructive social events and, when they leave us, in the impact they make at university and in their future careers.  In every walk of life, there are former Chew Valley Sixth Formers making an outstanding contribution to the success of our country.

We are proud of the very wide range of enrichment opportunities offered to our Sixth Form students. Yes, academic effort and success are valued, but we are hugely committed to the development of those wider life skills that only experiences outside the classroom can provide.

On one afternoon a week, Year 12 choose from weekly workshops which include Walking and Navigation, EPQ, Mindful Movement, Charity Fundraising, Upskills in ICT and Relaxation Games.
