Not just any education, but the one you dream of.

CCSS is proud to be setting the education agenda for ambitious young people. Our students’ accomplishments and the success of our alumni reflects our ambition to transform aspiration into achievement.

CCSS… inspiring education.



Note from the Principal

At CCSS we have a straightforward, clear and determined view of what a good education should be. Driven by a passion for learning and a joy in teaching, we are committed to providing our students with an unrivalled platform for academic and personal growth in an environment where aspiration, respect and tolerance thrive.

Ultimately, we want what we believe all parents want from their children’s education: that they are inspired and excited by devoted teachers, in an environment that is stimulating, motivating, happy and safe.

“The defining feature is the close harmony and friendships that have developed among these young people. Diversity is celebrated and the culture of the college is clearly demonstrated by the respect shown to each other.”

Good teachers teach, the best inspire

Our teachers are the teachers we would all want for our children. Subject specialists they teach exclusively at sixth-form level. They are great communicators, passionate about their subjects and, most importantly, are all determined to inspire their students to be the very best they can be.

We are committed to transforming aspiration into achievement.

Our teaching


A uniquely personal education

Our specialist teachers and the intimate environment they create, in some of the smallest class sizes anywhere in the UK, mean our students have all the time and attention they need to learn how to study and think. This supportive atmosphere ensures our students’ abilities and horizons are constantly challenged and expanded.
