    Year 8 & 9 GSCE options

    Our Year 8 & 9 students are currently choosing their options. Having already attended an Options Evening, they are currently experiencing taster lessons as part of their school day.

    Our advice is for them to take their time, and not to rush their choices. They have until Friday 13th of March to submit their form, which must be signed by both their parents and their tutor.

    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.

    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.
