We are excited to welcome current and prospective students and parents on-site to our Sixth Form 2023 Open Evening.
We are very excited to open our doors once again to current and prospective parents and students to enjoy an evening to explore our fantastic facilities, meet many of our excellent members of staff and hear from our existing sixth form students and learn about their experience with us.
To give you as much flexibility and time as you need, the evening will be a combination of presentations (see booking information below) and free flow to allow you to explore our facilities and talk to staff and students at your leisure.
Our doors will open at 4:30pm. Throughout the evening, there will be exhibitions from each of our faculties with students and staff showcasing the work our Year 12 and 13 students have been doing. Staff and students will also be on hand to talk to you in depth about life at CCS and their subjects, and how these can shape your child’s future. You will be able to self-guide the exhibitions throughout D & E Blocks and a detailed brochure and map will be provided when you arrive. There will also be staff and students on hand to help guide you should you wish. If you wish to do a self-guided tour only and not attend any of the presentations, please request the self-guided tour only ticket.
You will be able to book into two presentations (subject to availability) from our Principal and Head of Sixth Form, and from our Performance Lead for Year 12. These do not need to be attended in any particular order – further information and time slots are below:
Welcome from Principal and Head of Sixth form
Mr James and Mrs McTaggart will be talking to you about our school, vision and strategy and teaching and learning the Caroline Chisholm School way, and also why Caroline Chisholm School should be your child’s school of choice.

- Welcome 1: 5:00-5:20pm

A Level mindset – Talk from Year 12 Performance Leader
There will also be a 20-minute presentation from our Year 12 Performance Leader, Miss Cambio, who will be speaking on A Level mindset – bridging the gap from GCSE to A Level.
