Shaping CCHS for the Future

Last week, building work eventually commenced in the first phase of alterations to the school layout, ahead of our sixth form provision moving to Tendring Education Centre in Jaywick Lane, in September. The works were due to get underway at Easter, but were delayed due to the initial lockdown. The Shaping CCHS for the Futureregulations. An additional student entrance into the main building is being created, adjacent to the old Sixth Form Common Room, to reduce corridor congestion as students leave the Art and Design Block. The Sixth Form Centre will be converted into a new staff room over the summer holiday, making way for two new science classrooms in place of the current staff room.
The Shaping CCHS for the Future
A number of our small Sixth Form classrooms are now redundant and these spaces are being utilised to enlarge adjacent rooms. Miss Harman’s Humanities room, next to the library, now includes the old G6 (above left) and both Miss Bracey’s and Miss Donovan’s English rooms have been enlarged, with the removal of F6 (above right).
In addition, a number of small projects have started, in preparation for the building of a new gym and additional classrooms, on the school field. A new entrance corridor has been created through part of the school library, linking through G-Block and, eventually, through to a new pupil entrance, adjacent to the Drama Blackroom and through, what was, Mr Green’s Childcare teaching room.
