  • Small Group Open Events October 2021

    Due to Devon being in a Covid Enhanced Response Area until 4th October, we have taken the difficult decision to change the way we conduct our open events by replacing the College Open Evening on Tuesday 21st September with a wide range of smaller and more personal events. We are very keen to meet prospective parents/carers and pupils and are delighted to be able to offer a ‘package’ of Covid-safe opportunities to help inform your choice of secondary school for September 2022.
    Small group tours – wide range of dates available
    We are offering small group tours with our Executive Headteacher Michael Johnson, Deputy Executive Headteacher Neil Payne and SENDCO Laura Mackie. After school for those who may not be able to visit in working hours and morning tours for those who wish to visit during a normal school day.  Being able to see the school ‘in action’ provides an excellent window into what we offer here at Chulmleigh College, and with the tours being led by our Senior Leadership Team in a small group environment, you will have ample opportunities to ask any questions you may have. 
    We are offering a wide range of dates for these tours, please click on the links below to book.

Citizenship Education aims to give pupils the knowledge and skills needed to play an active and full role in the communities in which they live. It is a subject that seeks to inform pupils of what their legal and human rights are as citizens – but also as to what their responsibilities are. Citizenship can be broken down into the following four themes:

  • Political Literacy
  • Understanding the Law
  • Rights and Responsibilities
  • Making a Difference/Getting Involved

Citizenship is mainly delivered as a discrete subject in years eight, nine and eleven. However many other subject areas make important contributions to this subject. In addition to conventional lessons pupils will participate in Citizenship through their involvement in the Community strand of PSHEE and in year ten through three Focus Fridays. Citizenship though is an inescapable part of all our lives. Pupils may participate in extra-curricular activities on Citizenship, such as the National Magistrates Mock Trial competition or by involvement with the College’s Peer Parliament.

The mentoring system is another example of how our pupils work to improve the school community through positive action. Importantly though pupils at Chulmleigh show good Citizenship through mutual respect for each other and their environment – a real strength of the College.

Fundraising for charity has traditionally been a big feature of the College and again, our students continue to raise exceptional amounts of money to help change the lives of people at home and abroad.

We hope that on leaving the College, pupils are well equipped to understand their role within society. They should understand their rights and responsibilities are; how laws are made in the UK; and how our democracy functions. Above all we hope that our pupils will leave as confident individuals, with a good sense of what justice is and the appetite to make the very best out of the communities in which they will live and work in.
