CCHS Lecture Series

Departments organise a variety of interesting speakers to address parents and students in the CCHS Lecture series which occurs across the academic year, normally in the evening.

Lunchtime Seminars

Throughout the year we invite a range of speakers; former students, university lecturers and representatives of a wide variety of professions to lead lunchtime seminars with interested students.  These sessions provide valuable opportunities for students to think beyond the boundaries of their school subjects.


CCHS students regularly participate in competitions to enrich their learning. These vary from Oxbridge essay competitions through Engineering Schemes to opportunities such as the Bar Mock Trial where we were recently regional winners. Details of recent successes of our students can be found on the Sixth Form Twitter News feed.

Wider Study

Students are also encouraged to follow guided self-study through the future learn website which contains distance learning courses from a variety of top academic institutions, as well as to utilise websites such as Google Scholar and iTunesU to enhance their learning.
