    Our Principal, Mr Martyn, was a guest on Spirit FM recently. He was asked, among other things, about our School receiving four times as many applicants as places for the coming academic year. He also defended the Free School model, which is seen by the government as the future of the school system. Click here to find out more and listen to the radio interview in full.

    'CFS and Beyond'

    Our senior students have designed and written the CFS magazine 'CFS and Beyond' detailing lots of interesting and important aspects of our School, including events, 'After School Club' reviews, cool crafts and fun facts. Thanks to all of the students who contributed their time and talent to the project.

  • World Book Day

    Our World Book Day

    We all had a wonderful day dressed as our favourite characters. It was great to see the wide range of literary activities the children engaged in, with the Hungry Caterpillar helping out in Maths and Leonard from Read2Dogs making a very popular appearance. Many thanks also to our team of wonderful staff who dressed magnificently to enjoy the spirit of what is a great day nationally and for our School.

    CFS is the popular choice

    As Year 6 pupils across the Chichester district have now received news of where they will begin their secondary school education, we can now (proudly) reveal, that CFS received four times as many applicants as places for the coming academic year. This is a remarkable achievement for a school in only its second year of operation and also re-enforces the important role of Free Schools in providing good school places.

  • Travel plan

    A gentle reminder

    Please remember that on our current school site, it is important for both parents and students to obey our site rules for pick-up and drop-off.

    The safety of our students is paramount and we would politely request that everyone in our school community refreshes their knowledge of the rules surrounding peak traffic times.

  • 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.
