Most Able @ CCHS

Most Able and Talented

Clacton County High School has a well established 'Most Able and Talented' programme that offers our most able students a curriculum that supports their strengths in the classroom and through a wide variety of enrichment activities.
Master classes are offered throughout the academic year to our Primary School Partners so that the long-term success of our students is developed at an early stage and continued when they join the school. Everyday teaching provides opportunities for our most able youngsters to develop breadth and depth within their education. The work of our most able students is celebrated throughout the school; the Clouds Gallery, sculptures on the school premises, visual media via our digital display screens, public exhibitions, frequent Drama and Music productions. We have developed close links with the Jack Petchy Foundation and through workshops in the school, our most able students are ambassadors, representing CCHS at public events hosted at the school and at national speaking competitions. Our most able students lead the way in the school in supporting success and achievement.

The vision for CCHS is one where Every Child Matters and that our statement of "Higher Expectations, Raising Aspirations"  is fully supported throughout our students’ educational experience. Providing for the Most Able and Talented learners is a matter of equity and we offer, as with all other pupils, an education that is suited to their needs and abilities, to allow them to fulfil their true potential.

Face Coverings

In line with the national guidance, students, staff and any visitors to school are currently required to wear a face covering, unless exempt, in all communal areas or public spaces on the school site; this also applies to students travelling on public transport and for parents when attending any meetings in school.
