The Principal Reports:

Neil Gallagher, PrincipalStudents at Clacton County High School are celebrating wonderful GCSE and A level results. There were some stunning individual outcomes and amazing stories of success that have enabled all our Year 11 students to progress onto apprenticeships, sixth form or further education. Top GCSE performers include Charlotte Hope (6 A* grades, 1 Distinction* and grades 8, 7, 9 in Maths, Language and English literature respectively), Shannon Fisher (5A*, 1 A, 1 Distinction* and 3 grade 8), Adam Swaine (6A*, 1 Distinction* and grades 9, 8, 5 in Maths, Language and English literature), Aaron Morgan, Amelia Newport, Luke Whitfield, Alice Smith and Vishnu Sureshbabu also achieved a staggering number of top grades.
The A Level pass rate was 99% with 49% of the grades awarded at A*-B and 80% A*-C grades. Applied level 3 courses saw great success with 100% pass rate and 92% of all grades awarded at either Distinction or Distinction*.
Amongst the highest achievers at A Level were John Cullen-Kennedy (A* grades in RE, English Literature and a grade A in History) who has gained a place to read Philosophy at King’s College London, Danielle Harvey (A* grades in English Literature and Textiles and an A grade in English Language), Matthew Greenwood (A* in RE and A grades in History and Psychology) who will be reading history at the University of St. Andrews, Ben Brooker (A* Maths and A grades in Further Maths and Physics), Annie Ashwell (A grades in Art, Textiles and English Language), Anthony Hart (A grades in Maths, and Chemistry and B grades in Biology and Physics) who will be reading Nuclear Science & Materials at the University of Birmingham. Pierre Alderman-White (who achieved 4 Distinction* grades) who has accepted a place to read International Relations at UEA, Shania-Grace Thompson (who achieved 4 Distinction* grades) who has a place at the University of Creative Arts to study Acting and Performance, Chloe Vickers (grade B in A level Media Studies, Distinction* in Business and a Distinction in Production), Amy Vincent (who achieved 4 Distinction* grades) and will be studying Dance at the University of Bedfordshire.
Once again the results this Summer have surpassed all expectations. We have seen exceptional achievement across the board. The proportion of students achieving the highest grades is very impressive and nearly all of them have secured excellent progression into our Sixth Form, onto college, employment, apprenticeships or their first choice university. This has been down to the incredible efforts made by the students and their teachers. I am delighted for all our students and their families, my congratulations go out to them all. I cannot praise the staff here at CCHS more highly for their commitment and dedication to our students. I wish them every success in the next stage in their chosen path.

Neil Gallagher, Principal CCHS
