The Principal Reports:

Neil Gallagher, PrincipalThe blog this week will be quite brief, reflecting on last week and the forthcoming week. The reason for this, is that I am rather preoccupied this weekend and until Tuesday, on a school trip to Paris! I am very lucky and privileged to accompany a group of students from Years 9 to 11 on this learning on location opportunity to the French capital. I am really looking forward to listening to them practise their linguistic skills and to observe their, albeit brief, immersion into the unique Parisian culture. I will report back to you next week on how our trip went.
Last week was very busy, with a trip to Colchester Zoo to launch our new exciting STEM collaboration focusing on conservation and protecting wildlife. Our netball and rugby teams had matches against Harwich, some year groups played at home whilst others travelled to the opposition. There was disappointment for the students who went on the Wallace trip; the coach broke down on the way and, unfortunately, the company was unable to secure a replacement coach in enough time for the trip to continue and the students returned to school. Miss Robinson, the trip organiser, commended our students for being so patient and well-behaved despite being confined for quite sometime on the coach. The Colour Run took place on Friday after school and we were so lucky with the weather, it was a lovely day for the event. All the participants and the paint throwers had a really enjoyable time and proved that sport can be fun, whatever your ability. The final event of the week was Miss Gough's Year 9 dance trip to Colchester on Friday evening. Full reports and photos from all of these activities will be available in next week's edition of Parent News.
Coming up this week; on Tuesday we have our first REAL day (Religious, Ethical and Lifelong Learning), there will be a wide range of workshops and activities covering many important topics. On Thursday evening, we have the Clacton County High School Sixth Form College information and subject fair. Students from our current Year 11 and from other local schools are welcome to attend to find out about the courses, enrichment opportunities and the resources available at CCHS for post-16 study. Trips next week include a visit by Year 12's to the Henry Moore studios and students from Years 10 to 13 are going to the Knitting and Stitching Show in London, and sporting fixtures continue for all year groups.
Neil Gallagher, Principal CCHS

    Literacy Focus


    Extended Writing

    The current whole school focus aims to improve the quality of students' extended writing.
