The Principal Reports......

The Principal ReportsJust prior to the Easter holidays the astonishing achievements of our school were officially recognised when on Wednesday 25th March, accompanied by Chris Taylor, Vice Principal, and Steve McGrath, Vice Chair of Governors, I had the pleasure of attending the Pupil Premium Awards in London. At this event Clacton County High School was declared as the Regional Runner-Up for the East of England for the progress made by our disadvantaged students. The Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, handed out the awards along with David Laws, Minister of State for Schools. It was a very proud moment for the school and it was great to see our achievements acknowledged by this national award.

Previous / Next / Stop / Start / Mouse over to pause

Last term we were able to announce newly created links with Essex University that have been developing this year. CCHS has taken a lead role in further enhancing our Sixth Form provision and providing students with an insight into life in Higher Education. Working with a group of 6 schools we will be offering courses in minority A Level subjects at the Wivenhoe campus. It will also broaden the opportunities for many other students as the University has very kindly agreed to host a range of events for local schools. This has already begun with a Languages Day held on Wednesday, 25th March. A selected number of students from across the local secondary schools came together for an entire day to have a taste of the university experience and to practice and develop their language skills. Our thanks to Miss Sargent for organizing this successful event. This is going to be a fantastic opportunity for students and will be the start of an exciting partnership that can only develop from this point.
This Girl CanAs usual there have been some amazing achievements by many of our students, but the girls have been the shining stars. The PE team were responsible for organising the “This Girl Can” event a few weeks ago. Despite being ‘banned’ from attending, I turned up expecting to see a few of our keen sports people participating and was astonished to find that there were over 350 students, together with some of their female relatives and many staff, all taking part and raising £100 for Cervical Cancer Research in the process. Over half the female students in the school were represented at the event, well done girls! The girls’ U16 football teams have been performing really well in their recent matches against local schools winning almost all of their games. The performance of the Netball teams is also worthy of recognition with the U14 team playing for a place in the quarter finals of the Essex Cup, the first time in CCHS history. The number of girls participating in a range of STEM events (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) has increased this year; they are an exceptionally talented and enthusiastic group of ladies. Two girls in particular, Leah Green and Jemma Mason, have really excelled this year and following the recent STEM residential visit to Warwick University have been put forward by the CEO of the Smallpeice Trust for a special scholarship.
Formula 24However, the boys should not be too disappointed and have not been out done altogether, as they too have enjoyed many football and also rugby successes. In regard to STEM, a group of 6th form students have recently begun test driving the Formula 24 car they have built from scratch and are looking forward to competing with it in the forthcoming months.
Congratulations on an individual success goes to Sonny Bastone who competed in the English Schools Finals Cross Country Junior Boys in Blackburn during March. He came 54th out of 341 runners which made him the 4th fastest cross country runner in his category for the whole of Essex. This was a fantastic achievement and really signals a promising future for Sonny in athletics.

And last but definitely not least……… it is that time of year where students in our upper school will be focussed on revision for their GCSE and A Level exams and understandably it can be an anxious and stressful time for students and families alike. I know how hard the students have all been working supported by the amazing CCHS staff and I wish them all the best of luck and look forward to celebrating their successes on the exam results days during the summer holidays.
