The Chalfonts Community College converted to Academy status in 2011 and is a larger than average community academy with a roll of 1400 students. Our last Ofsted Inspection was carried out at the end of 2017 when the College was judged as ‘good’ overall. 'There is a sense of pride, both in Chalfonts Community College and in the outcomes pupils achieve, that is shared between staff, governors and pupils.'
Our curriculum is designed to:
• Be rich and relevant and meet the needs, interests and aspirations of all students

• Support students with the educational and career choices that they make at different ages
• Develop the skills and attitudes required for students to succeed after leaving school and to become responsible and confident members of society.

Extra Curricular Activities
At Chalfonts Community College we aim to ensure that the whole child is catered for with extra-curricular opportunities including theatre visits, music performances, sports clubs and teams and a wide range of other events. Our Performing Arts productions are renowned for their outstanding quality and our sports teams compete at local, regional and national levels. We recognise the importance of activities beyond the classroom in developing the experience, skills and personal attributes of our students, enabling them to be better prepared for applications to and success in, university and the world of work.
We understand the importance of keeping students safe, happy, and secure. Each of our students is assigned a personal tutor who remains with them through Years 7 to 11. In the Sixth Form personal tutors assist with university and work applications. We also provide support from Learning Mentors, our Inclusion Manager and our excellent Learning Support Department.
We operate a coaching culture to share best practice, maintain high standards of teaching and to support all staff in their career development. In our school, we have 90 (FTE) teaching staff and 80 (FTE) members of support staff.
