Our vision at Clacton County High School is to create opportunities within and beyond the curriculum to enable each student to develop his or her potential to the full in order that he or she may be a confident, independent and successful adult.

We seek to widen the aspirations of all students, to help them create a goal they then strive to achieve. We have high expectations of academic success and personal behaviour and believe these are best achieved in a caring environment. Both these aims are encompassed in our mission statement:

Higher Expectations, Raising Aspirations,

Parents and Carers of Year 6 pupils now have to consider their child’s secondary school place for September 2021. This is a key decision in the life of any child. Unfortunately, this year we are unable to hold our usual Year 6 Open Evening. However, we will be offering socially distanced school tours from 4.00pm – 5.00pm Monday to Thursday.
If you wish to see the school in person, we are offering socially distanced tours by appointment only.
Please use this form to make your reservation.
Please take a note the date and time you have booked; we will not contact you to confirm your booking, unless we need to make a change. 

Please play our school video to hear from our students and key senior staff.
