Year 11 is an extremely important time for Chipping Norton School students as they move towards completing their GCSE courses and preparing themselves for the summer examinations.  It can be a stressful time in a student’s life and we recognise the pressure that GCSE examinations pose. We support our students by ensuring they are confident and ready to sit examinations but also by encouraging them to be active and healthy to ensure they have a positive mindset. We are fully aware that some students find this a difficult period in their life and therefore we have provisions in place to support students in our care.

We provide structured advice and guidance to ensure students obtain information on their post 16 options. We actively encourage students to research sixth form, colleges, apprenticeship and jobs that provide training to allow them to make an informed decision about their own future. The majority of students from Year 11 go on to study A levels at Chipping Norton Sixth form.
