The Head of School Reports:

Chris Taylor, Head of SchoolThe new Year 7 students are settling into CCHS life extremely well, after four weeks completed, they have definitely found their feet and way around the school and have been introduced to our expectations and the opportunities that secondary school is able to provide.
Last Thursday we held our annual Open Evening. Year 6 Students from across all of our local primary schools attended CCHS, accompanied by their parents/carers, to take a look around the school and sample all of the exciting things that happen at secondary school. The evening is a very special event in the school calendar with presentations and activities. Staff and current students were available to showcase the school and provide as much information as possible to enable the Year 6 students and their parents/carers to help make the most appropriate secondary school choice for September 2020. The evening went extremely well and was very busy, it was a pleasure to welcome and meet so many prospective students and their parents/carers. I hope we have helped to enable them to make an informed choice about the next step for their child's educational future. Thanks to all the CCHS staff and the student helpers, it was long day for many, but very satisfying to proudly showcase our school and what we do.
The previous Thursday we held our annual Awards Evening, enabling us to recognise and celebrate the success of those students who have just completed their examinations and received their results in August. Whilst there were many outstanding academic achievements, it also gave the opportunity to recognise those students who have worked really hard throughout their time at CCHS and achieved way beyond expectations. The evening made me extremely proud of our young people and provided the opportunity to wish them well for the future; especially those heading off to pastures new away from CCHS, whether that be university, employment or apprenticeships. Good luck and best wishes to them all!
Last week we published our list of extra-curricular clubs. Taking part in activities outside of the classroom is very important, whether a student’s interest lies within STEM, drama, music, dance, art, sport or academia, there really is something for everyone and I would encourage all students to participate in an activity linked to an area of interest. The clubs allow students to socialise with other peers that may not be in their forms and classes and perhaps from other year groups. The school community is very important to us and creates a real sense of unity and pride.
Each week we publish our Parent News, which has many articles on the amazing things that our students do, but also has important information and dates for parents. In this week’s edition there is an introduction for parents to our new PROUD initiative which is happening throughout school and encourages students to build their experiences beyond the school gates. We are very excited about this, please take a look and see how you can support and encourage your child to complete the PROUD pledges.
The weekly Parent News is available to view HERE.
