The Principal Reports:
As I have mentioned previously in my blogs, Clacton County High School officially becomes part of The Sigma Trust from September. Although there will be no obvious changes to the school on a day to day basis, one big change is that from this date, Jeff Brindle, our Executive Principal, officially leaves CCHS to move on to a new role as Chief Executive Officer of The Sigma Trust.
Under Jeffâs leadership as Principal since 2007 and then as Executive Principal since last year, CCHS has been transformed into a school that has seen outcomes and opportunities massively improve for all students of all abilities. As CEO of The Sigma Trust, he will still be working with our school together with our partners within the Stanway Federation and St. Helena, and will continue to seek ongoing improvements in the educational outcomes and aspirations of all Trust students from primary to secondary. Our entire school community sends our thanks and gratitude Jeff, he leaves CCHS in an excellent position and we are very optimistic for the future; we wish him the very best of luck in his new role.
The past academic year has been amazing, there have been so many accolades and successes; as a school, as teams and as individuals. I refer not only to our students, but as you will know from my blogs and Parent News, there has been national and regional recognition of some CCHS staff too. I am very proud of everyone and I only hope that the effort, hard work and commitment of the students and staff are rewarded in the exam results which will be received in August. This is the most important thing for our staff, it is why we all came into teaching, so that students can achieve a successful and happy future.
I am really looking forward to next year, welcoming the new cohort of CCHS students into Year 7 and also our other year groups back. 2015-16 was a great year and I am genuinely excited for what next year will bring for our students.
Finally, I would like to wish you all a very happy and healthy summer break.
Neil Gallagher, Principal CCHS
