Annual Educational Showcase

Annual Educational Showcase
Last week, we opened our doors for our annual Open Evening, showcasing the school to the local community. The evening brought staff and students together to demonstrate the wide and diverse opportunities, resources and knowledge that we have to offer our students. The main purpose of the evening was to give local Year 6 students and their parents an insight into life at CCHS.

The evening not only focused on academic study but also showed prospective pupils what it is like to be a student at CCHS and what they can gain from joining our school. Parents of Year 6 students will soon have to decide their preferred secondary school and the Open Evening enabled them to visit our school prior to making their final choice. During the evening, there were a multitude of activities, demonstrations and displays, especially laid on for the visitors by each of our faculties and their teaching departments. A great deal of effort and attention to detail was evident to ensure the visitors gained a realistic feel of what CCHS has to offer.

Once again, the annual CCHS Open Evening was a resounding success with numerous parents commenting on our outstanding facilities, enthusiastic staff and students. Many wished they were back at school and able to experience school life with the range of amenities and amazing opportunities that perhaps they did not have when they were at school. We look forward to welcoming many of our Year 6 visitors back, as Year 7 students, next September.

Year 11 - Post 16 Open Evening

Year 11 - Post 16 Open EveningYear 11 students need to begin to consider what they want to do after their GCSEs next summer and that process starts next week. The Clacton County High School Sixth Form College Open Evening takes place at the school on Thursday 11th October, 5.00pm until 7.00pm, to promote the opportunities available to Post 16 learners. It is now compulsory for students to remain in some form of education or training until the age of 18: they may either progress to sixth form, attend college or undertake an apprenticeship. Students, parents and carers are invited to attend the evening, where they will be able to collect information about the wide range of courses and options available. The evening will open with a presentation in the school hall at 5.15pm.
During the evening, our year 11 students will receive a copy of the Clacton County High School Sixth Form College Prospectus. This prospectus outlines the wide range of courses we offer to our sixth form students and information on the choices available, whatever grades they hope to attain at the end of this school year. Whether it be a training pathway, such as an apprenticeship, or further study, Post-16, we very much hope that all Year 11 students and their parents or carers will be able to attend.
