Wider Opportunities

There are lots of opportunities open to year 8 pupils in addition to our extra-curricular timetable.  You may be invited to come along to an online conference, or to listen to an inspiring speaker.  I might invite you to join other pupils in developing your talents through the CREST awards or to attend a workshop led by school staff or outside visitors.

  • Durham University

    In year 8 there will be opportunities to attend workshops run by Durham University tutors to find out all about university life and to develop stronger study skills.

  • Speakers For Schools

    We have invited fascinating speakers to give inspiring talks here at CHCS.  You may get to hear a talk from the Speakers For Schools network in year 8!

  • Rocking Ur Teens

    This year, a number of year 8 pupils took part in the Rocking Ur Teens online conference.  This is a great opportunity to learn about future choices and hear inspiring talks.

  • Crest Awards

    The CREST Awards is open to a number of year 8 pupils each academic year. The scheme is the British Science Association’s flagship programme for young people, providing science enrichment activities which help to inspire and engage young people.
