    Year 7 students rise to the challenge

    Our Year 7 Challenge students were asked to complete an end of year task. One group hosted a tea party for CFS staff, while Hollie Maple wrote and word processed an early years children's story which, together with her able assistants, Daisy Hunt and Sofia Wilson, she then read to a group of our younger children.

    Chichester Free School receives glowing Ofsted endorsement

    From September we will have a new Year 4 class

    We're thrilled to announce that from this September we'll have a new Year 4 class, bridging our upcoming gap between Year 3 and Year 5. The decision to add the class was driven by the demand from many of our existing parents who have children in that age bracket. 50% of the children who will fill the class, are likely to have siblings already attending Chichester Free School.

    A huge thanks to the wonderful CFS Friends

    Our amazing team of Friends recently donated a new minibus to our school. After just one year in operation, through the organisation of fairs, quiz nights, discos and film nights, they raised over £11,000. They decided to use the fund to buy a minibus, to transport CFS children to sports fixtures, Forest School and educational excursions.

  • We've joined the Read2Dogs scheme

    The Read2Dogs scheme was developed by Pets as Therapy, to help children who find reading aloud to others a little daunting. Instead of reading to an adult, the children are encouraged to read to a lovely dog.
