WANT TO KNOW MORE?

To give you a flavour of our Sixth Form we have asked parents, students, teachers and members of our alumni community FIVE QUESTIONS about their Charters Sixth Form experiences. Take a look to discover what life could be like for you on our Sixth Form community.

A BEHIND THE SCENES LOOK...

Last year we were unable to show new students around our Sixth Form and so produced this video to give people a flavour of life in our Sixth Form.

We are looking forward to meeting prospective students in person this year, however thought that many of you would still find the video valuable.
