There were numerous providers on hand throughout the day to inform and discuss with the students their ideas and aspirations to help them plan their next step.
Students also had an opportunity to see where they could be studying next year, when our sixth form moves to its new home at the Tendring Education Centre in September 2020.

World Mental Health Day 2019

PROUD - UnityYesterday our mental health team marked World Mental Health Day by highlighting the topic across the school. The annual global day helps highlight mental health awareness, helps educate, and endeavours to break the social barriers about the subject. Mental health has been brought to the fore at CCHS with our Mental Health team on hand to give help and guidance, along with support from our student mentors. World Mental Health Day 2019
Throughout World Mental Health Day, lessons touched on the topic of mental health, to help tackle the stigma surrounding this issue that affects so many people in our lives. By the end of the day students had more of an awareness of the issue and an understanding of their own and others mental health needs; more importantly, they learnt how they can support each other.

It only takes a simple “How are you?” reinforced with “Are you sure?” if you think they may not be okay...

Our mental health team aims to encourage everyone to be more open about mental health and they are available to offer support to students, every Wednesday lunchtime, in Room J6. Our student Mind Matters Mentors are also available, if students would rather speak to someone of a similar age. If you have any concerns about a student and want to ask for advice then please email the school at - students can also email to ask for support themselves.
