CCHS Summer Reading Challenge 2019 Revision Microsite

The Head of School Reports:

Chris Taylor, Head of SchoolWelcome back to school and I hope that everyone enjoyed a very happy and healthy summer break. It was good to have a late August bank holiday weekend with exceptional weather and a good way to lead up to the end of the holidays.
I would like to extend a very warm welcome to all of our new Year 7 students and their parents/carers, and to our new members of staff. I look forward to working with everyone.
During the holidays we received our Key Stage 5 (Level 3) A Level & BTEC results as well as our Key Stage 4 (Level 2) GCSE & BTEC results. There were some stunning individual outcomes at GCSE and many students received a raft of amazing grades. I would like to give a special mention to our top Year 11 performers that include Thea Longden (10 subjects at grade 8/9); Laurelin Chase (7 subjects at grade 8/9 and 3 subjects at grade 7); Shadman Rahman (7 subjects at grade 7+); Katie Doidge and Hannah Thomas who both achieved 9 subjects at grade 7+; Libbi Benbow (8 subjects at grade 7+); Daniel Keil and Cole Matthews who both achieved 6 subjects at grade 7 or above.
We saw many outstanding individual Year 13 results with the vast majority of students having achieved their first choice place at university. Amongst the highest achievers were Adam Swaine (A* grades in Further Maths, Maths, Extended Project and an A in Physics) who has gained a place at the University of Warwick to read Maths; Shannon Fisher (A* Extended Project, A grades in Biology, Chemistry and a B grade in Maths) who will be reading Medicine at the University of Hull; William Lawrence (A grades in Criminology, Art, Extended Project and a B grade in English Language) who will be studying Animation at Norwich University of the Arts; Mia-Rose Daniels (A grades in Drama, Criminology and a C grade in History) who will be studying International Event Management at the University of Surrey; Mateusz Nowak (A grades in Maths, Extended Project and B grades in Further Maths and Physics) Mateusz is reading Physics at Kings College London next year; Amelia Newport (A* Extended Project, A grades in Maths, Drama, C grade in Further Maths) who will read maths at the University of York; Jon Nico Matibag-Perez (A Spanish, B Geography, C Maths, Distinction in Business); Laura Goldsmith and Carl Anderson both achieved (Triple Distinction* in Sport, equivalent to 3 A grades); Katie Smith (Distinction* in Business, Sport and a C grade in Maths).
My congratulations go to all of our GCSE and A-Level students and their families and I wish them every success in the next stage of their chosen path.
As with school life, students quickly settle back into lessons and their learning. This is complemented by the wide range of extra-curricular clubs and activities. In the next couple of weeks we will be putting together our 2019-20 programme and will be inviting students to become involved in a club or activity to suit their individual interest or passion. I would strongly recommend all students look to take part in at least one extra-curricular club each week to ensure that they get the most out of their time at CCHS.
Also look out for the launch of our new re-branded PROUD initiative. We are very excited about this and look forward to the students becoming involved in both school and community projects.
Chris Taylor, Head of School
