OFSTED Inspection Report
In October 2007, CCHS had its fourth OFSTED inspection. The Sixth Form section of the report states:
Intellectual challenge and student engagement are features of the outstanding teaching and learning that maintain standards among the highest in the country.
“Careers guidance is excellent, especially the very thorough preparation students receive for university application. Almost all students continue into higher education with most gaining places at highly regarded universities.”
