Student Life

Connect with your talents

When you join us as a Sixth Form student, you’ll be encouraged to explore the whole range of your talents. Yes, we want you to reach your academic potential, but we also want you to enjoy yourself, find out about who you are, and prepare to use your passion, abilities and personality out in the world!

This means that there is always something extra to get involved with at The Sixth Form at The Catholic High School Chester, above and beyond your studies. By taking part in these extra opportunities, you’ll not only be having fun, meeting new people, or strengthening existing friendships – you’ll also be developing important skills for work and life.

These activities include fantastic trips both in the UK and abroad, with recent visits including Berlin and Auschwitz, and expeditions to Peru! 

If you are into Sports, we have a whole range of clubs open to you including football, rugby and trampolining during lunchtimes and after school. Students can also work towards their Duke of Edinburgh Awards in Sixth Form. 

Music Sixth Formers have the opportunity to join our famous City Jazz Swing Band, who perform at the annual Cork jazz festival, as well as our School Choir ‘Voicebox’. You also have opportunities to embrace performing arts in on and off-stage roles in school productions This year’s performance of Matilda follows on from previous performances of Cinderella (Panto), Fame and We Will Rock You

As a Sixth Former you can lead on charity and fundraising activities, and you can even form your own clubs and societies. In our local community, you can get involved in supporting the local foodbanks, providing Christmas hampers to the elderly and join in our annual diocesan pilgrimage to Lourdes. 

If you’re interested in developing your entrepreneurial skills, students are given the opportunity to develop their own business through Young Enterprise. In recent years we’ve seen the selling of eco-friendly stationary(give some examples).

As a student here, you are an integral part of our whole-school community; and can support students in other year groups through subject mentoring and year 7 buddying. If you wish to represent student opinion on Sixth Form matters, you can also apply to join the Sixth Form Leadership Team

The Catholic High School was founded by and is part of the Catholic church, and students wishing to explore the faith can take part in religious education days, voluntary retreats and Diocese of Shrewsbury youth activities.

Our staff and students also plan many events and activities to celebrate diversity and mark awareness (insert examples)

There may be more examples e.g. politics, debating, film, speakers events, etc. Please add a few lines to show the range of exciting experiences the sixth form has to offer)

Join us, step out of your comfort zone and be curious! No matter what your interests, we’re sure there will be something exciting for you to get involved with.
