A FIRM FOUNDATIONFOR LIFE

A Message from our CEO

My name is Jane Benton and I am the very proud CEO of the Chingford Academies Trust.

Welcome to our Sixth Form.  I do hope that once you have had a look at the Sixth Form area of the website, having watched the videos presented by our students and my esteemed colleagues in the Sixth Form and in other subject areas across the School, that you will get a real flavour of what it means to be a Sixth Form student at Chingford Foundation School.  Of course, your destination is important, and it is important that you choose the right sixth form and so that I hope that we can persuade you why being a student at Chingford is the right choice to make.

Of course, moving from compulsory education at the age of 16 into new destinations and pathways, is a real rite of passage – it is a momentous occasion.  You will be full of hope, aspiration and excitement about new ways of working.  You are pursuing your dreams, which are becoming more tangible as every day goes by and, of course, you are studying subjects in more depth and which are of particular interest to you.  It is an exciting time. 

Our educational moto here is that our education provides a firm foundation for life and it is that high quality offer that results in well over 60% of our Year 11 students going on to study in our Sixth Form.  Of course, they have also formed very strong friendships with their peers and want to maintain those, as well as knowing and trusting the teachers.  For those of you who are external applicants you will be aware of the reputation of the Sixth Form at Chingford.  You will have seen the impressive results and be aware of the limitless enrichment opportunities that are available to you.  What I would like to add to that mix, is that you can be assured of a really warm welcome in our Sixth Form and our students who joined the Sixth Form from other schools will testify to that.

Of course, the space in which you study is very important and we understand that.  In the last year we have invested very heavily in the facilities for you.  Our aim was to create a university style experience.  From our social spaces to the research areas for private study and the collaborative learning spaces that we have created, supported by the very best technology, we think that you will enjoy your time and studies in those facilities.  Of course, as well as being forward thinking and creating a really exiting space in which to study, it is important that we hold on to the traditional values that our school has and the tradition and reputation that our we have including at sixth form level.

Many of you will be well aware of the impressive alumni that our school can boast over the decades that have gone before.  We have produced leaders in the fields of technology, the arts, sports, business and science and we really want you to be part of that.

We look forward to welcoming you in September.
