The Head of School Reports:

Chris Taylor, Head of SchoolAs we come to the end of the 2018-19 academic year, I have been reflecting over the many achievements and celebrations of success written about in previous blogs over the past twelve months.
Without doubt, there have been many personal and collective outstanding performances by our children. I have written about spectacular individual academic achievements, sporting stars, school competitions, learning on location, cultural visits and fund-raising, to mention just a few things.
Reflecting back on the past year, there are some key highlights. I am particularly proud of the outcome of our Ofsted inspection, which is how we began the year, being officially recognised as a good school with many outstanding features. A further highlight, was the spectacular school musical based on Les Misérables, which received a standing ovation each evening; every performance provided an equal memorable experience. Recently, at the Tendring Awards, the cast and crew were recognised with a special award, but also a mention for the other students and staff that were acknowledged in a wide range of categories.
There are many, many memorable moments throughout the year and the weekly edition of Parent News provides an excellent source of information for parents to find out about school life.
Looking to the future, the recent announcement that the school is facing some very exciting times ahead with the proposed expansion plans. Plans include; establishing a CCHS sixth form centre of excellence in West Clacton, a new build on this site creating 10 classrooms and a 4-court sports facility together with enhanced facilities for all of the community at Clacton Leisure Centre. This is an amazing opportunity and there will be a consultation about these plans in September.
As with the cycle of school life when one group leaves, another arrives and we look forward to welcoming in September our new Year 7 students and getting to know the new members of our school community, both the children and their families, as all settle into CCHS life.
Finally, a personal thanks to staff for their hard work and dedication, and to our upper school students’ for their commitment towards their recent exams, we sincerely hope they achieve what they have worked for and deserve. A school is just a series of buildings, but it is the staff, students and their parents that make it a great school and the support of home is vital to our success and the outcomes that our children achieve, and we look forward to working in partnership with you all through the next academic year.
We wish you all a very happy, healthy and sunny summer holiday and a reminder that school begins on Tuesday 3rd September for new Year 7 and sixth form and the rest of the school on Wednesday, 4th September.
Chris Taylor, Head of School
