In 2022 the progress of our disadvantaged students was Progress 8 +0.3, the national figure is -0.55. Our disadvantaged students make more progress than their non- disadvantaged peers nationally.

In 2023 CHHS has once again bucked the national trend with two thirds of all A Level grades at A*, A or B. An incredible 35 students, over a quarter of the Class of 2023, received 3 or more A* and A grades, and of those, a magnificent eight have gained highly competitive places either to study at Oxford or Cambridge to read Medicine or Veterinary Science at university.

We are delighted that CHHS is regularly named as one of the UK’s top-performing schools in The Sunday Times annual Parent Power Surveys. We are also extremely proud to have been selected as one of the first schools in England to become a lead Language Hub in the governments £15 million languages reboot.
