The Head of School Reports:

Chris Taylor, Head of SchoolIt is now official, the summer term has started and we were lucky enough to have enjoyed a beautiful and sunny Easter bank holiday weekend, a perfect end to the school holidays. Nature has suddenly burst into life, likewise so have our upper school students with the realisation that we are now counting down the days, hours and minutes to their examinations. This week our Year 11 MFL students kick the season off with their speaking exams, but there are many others too; drama, business to name but a few, and as we progress through May, the examination timetable really begins in earnest. There are still many opportunities for last minute study and revision; teaching staff are available and always happy to help, so students are advised to take full advantage of the support on offer. Parents, if you too, would like any guidance on how to provide your child with the best advice and how to assist with the optimum environment for independent study at home, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will do our best to help. Alternatively, there are some useful pages on our Revision Microsite.
Good luck to all of our students involved in exams over the forthcoming weeks, prepare well and do your best.
Understandably, it is exams that dominate the school schedule for the next couple of months, but there are plenty of other things going on for students in other year groups. We finished the spring term with two amazing overseas trips to Italy and Spain, and still to come is a trip to Berlin.
At CCHS, we really do try and ensure that the opportunities provided for students extend beyond the classroom, and that they compliment lessons and broaden interests. School trips, events and activities are intended to encourage our students to think about the possibilities and opportunities that lie ahead of them.
Thinking about futures, it is worth parents and students taking a look at our Careers & Aspirations Hub which is available on our website. There is a wealth of information available to assist in choosing the right individual career pathway, whether this be university, apprenticeship or employment. Follow the link to the Careers Hub, which is always being updated. Through the micro-website students can book an individual appointment to meet with a careers advisor for any help and advice. The careers team are continually seeking to develop links with businesses and further education establishments and are on hand to help students build and establish relationships which could open many doors of opportunity for life after CCHS. Whatever year group, it is seriously worth looking at the Careers Hub to begin to build a vision for the future.
As always, Parent News has many interesting articles and pictures, including a full and very entertaining account of the ski trip to Tonale in Italy with some great pictures taken on the slopes! Please take a look......
