The Principal Reports......

The Principal ReportsOn Friday, 6th February we received a letter from David Laws MP, the Minister of State for Education congratulating our school for winning £5,000 in the Key Stage 4 category of the Pupil Premium Awards and he also invited us to submit a further application to enter for the national awards. If successful the school could win up to £250,000 to be further used to improve outcomes for our students.
The reason this school was selected is that the Department for Education has identified CCHS as one of the most improved schools in the country in terms of attainment and value-added progress of our disadvantaged students. Mr Laws commended the school and sent his congratulations to staff, governors, parents and pupils for their hard work and success. Please click to read the Minister’s letter in full.
This success comes on the back of the release of the latest School Performance League Tables at the end of January when, yet again, we were able to celebrate the outstanding success of our students after they achieved some of the best results in Essex. At GCSE, in terms of the progress our students made since entering this school, CCHS is placed 3rd in the whole of Essex; a phenomenal accolade. These results also rank our students as 2nd highest in North Essex for attainment at 5 A*-C including English and Maths. We were also ranked 3rd in the whole of Essex for levels of progress in Maths with similar levels achieved also in English.
Last year 64% of our students achieved 5 A*- C grades including English and Maths. The progress our students make throughout their time at this school is truly impressive and we are particularly pleased and proud to be recognised as one of the best schools in the country in terms of the progress of those students who are entitled to the Pupil Premium Grant; a fantastic achievement. Congratulations to all of the students for their achievements and many thanks to our parents for their continuing support, this combined with the hard work and dedication of staff, enable our students to realise their true potential and fulfil their aspirations. The countdown now begins to this year's examination season.
Year 12 and 13 are continuing to work exceptionally hard in preparation for their AS, A Level and other examinations, which are so crucial for their futures.
Year 11 are also working extremely hard for their GCSEs this summer, the effort and hard work that they are putting in is very impressive. Some of our Year 10 students will also be taking examinations in the summer term and to all of our students throughout these year groups we wish them well and hope they achieve the success they all truly deserve.
Although academic success is the main criteria on how a school is judged our students are also amazing in many other aspects. Their sporting achievements remain a great source of pride for the school and each week almost without fail you will see articles in Parent News on their success, whether as individuals or teams, and also both inside and outside of school. Congratulations to all of our sporting super stars. Coupled with this are the many community activities and charitable fund raising events in which students are involved.
Once again, thank you to parents for your continued support, good luck to all our students with their forthcoming examinations, and I look forward to updating you next term with our achievements and news.
