The Principal Reports:

Neil Gallagher, PrincipalWelcome back, I hope everyone has enjoyed a lovely summer holiday and we have all had a good rest and are ready and prepared for the 2018-19 academic year.
During August, last year’s year 11 and 13 cohorts received their exam results. At GCSE, there were some stunning individual outcomes and amazing stories of success that have enabled all our students to progress onto apprenticeships, sixth form or further education. Year 13’s were also celebrating and I am very pleased to say that most students managed to get into their first choice university. Parent News this week has a full report on the students celebrating success.
Despite significant changes to the exam specifications (the new 9-1 grades were rolled out across all subject areas, except the technologies), our students embraced the new exam formats and worked very hard. I am very proud of their determination to do well and I cannot praise the staff here at CCHS more highly for their commitment and dedication to our students.
With week one completed, the new Year 7’s are beginning to settle into secondary school life already. They are finding their way around the school and making new friendships, some of which will last a lifetime. Very soon, the list of all the extra-curricular clubs will be released and there really will be something of interest for everyone; I hope that many students will take the opportunity to go along and enjoy the activities that happen outside of lessons.
Coming up this week on Thursday, 13th September we have a very special awards evening, to celebrate 2017-18 successes. The evening takes place very soon into the academic year, but this is to capture the Year 13’s before they head off to university and pastures new. We also have our first school trip of the academic year with a STEM group adventure to Harlow participating in a Quadcopter Build Day, sounds very exciting!
A reminder for all parents that we have our annual Open Evening on Thursday, 27th September, for the current Year 6 students to come and look around and see what we do at CCHS. On this day, school closes at 12.55pm.
In next week’s blog, I will let you know how the awards evening went and watch out for information on a very important initiative coming soon, PROUD Pledges.
Neil Gallagher, Principal CCHS

    Whole School Numeracy Focus

    Addition and Subtraction
    Numeracy is at the heart of our curriculum to ensure students are confident, clear and coherent learners who can apply skills for their everyday life and excel in their future aspirations. The current whole school focus for this half-term aims to help students recognise the synonyms for each numeracy skill to help them apply Addition and Subtraction in a variety of contexts. The focus also aims to encourage the use of mental maths to calculate answers.
