Open Events for 2022/2023

We have really enjoyed meeting new parents and pupils at our Open Events over the last term.  All our events have now taken place but if you have any queries about joining CFS, please do get in touch with Karie Wright, Admissions Manager on admissions@chichesterfreeschooo.org.uk

We will be publishing our Open Event dates for Reception and Year 7entry in September 2023 after May half term.

Remember that applications for either a Year 7 or a Reception place must be made directly to West Sussex County Council, not CFS.  

Virtual Open Events for Reception

Virtual events will be live here soon.

Virtual Open Events for Year 7

Whilst we are looking forward to welcoming many of you to CFS for our on-site Open Events, we hope that the variety of videos and information below also give you a taster of all that CFS has to offer. We also welcome any individual questions you have – as outlined below. No question is too small; choosing a Secondary school is an important decision and we want to support you in the process in any way we can.

We do hope you enjoy looking at our virtual Open Event resources:

1.       Virtual Tour of the Schoolvideo guiding you around our fantastic, award winning new facilities.
2.       Principal’s Presentation a presentation from our Principal, Mrs New, outlining key information about the School, including clips from CFS teachers, pupils and parents.
3.       Why Choose CFS? - with so much information from many different schools, here we have provided an overview of what we believe makes CFS special.
4.       Frequently Asked Questionsanswers to some of the questions we are often asked.
5.       Individual Questions – If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to email        admissions@chichesterfreeschool.org.uk , or call the School Office on 01243 792690.  We will ensure that an appropriate member of the team gets back to you within 2 working days of your query.

Further to this, do have a look at the rest of our website for more information about the School, including our Welcome Page from the Principal, and information about how to apply to CFS in the admissions section. The video links above will take you to our CFS You Tube Channel. On here you will find several videos that we created during both Lockdowns, including our Transition resources for our current Year 7s and 8s. Whilst we hope to not have to face such a situation again, these give you a further taste of the CFS community, educational provision and pastoral support.
