Support Staff

In addition to our department teaching staff we have a team of support staff which provides services to the departments, the students and are involved in the running of the school.

Graduate Teacher Training

We are the lead school for Colchester Teacher Training Consortium (CTTC), a partnership of primary and secondary schools which provides school-centred teacher training for graduates. At any time we would normally have three CTTC trainee teachers in school. Their work is supervised by experienced teachers within a department. 

Leading Edge (NEETSA)

Colchester County High School for Girls are delighted to be part of the government’s initiative to give outstanding schools a leading role in driving forward the quality of teaching and learning in education. NEETSA (North East Essex Teaching School Alliance) officially received designation in April 2013. The Teaching School Alliance is underpinned by many years of successful collaborative partnerships between schools across North East Essex and is based upon mutual respect and shared educational beliefs. 

The key aims of NEETSA are to:

• Develop an effective and sustainable alliance that helps deliver improved outcomes for young people

• Be part of system wide improvement that creates a better future for all

• Provide outstanding opportunities for staff within and beyond the Alliance to develop their leadership skills, experience and confidence including the delivery of licensed programmes from the National College for Teaching and Leadership

• Provide and broker outstanding training and development opportunities for staff within and beyond the Alliance that support the achievement of excellence in terms of learner outcomes

• Ensure the supply of outstanding new teachers; our goal is to provide the very best Initial Teacher Training • Provide school to school support that gives additional capacity to ensure that all schools can be strong and successful

• Work together on succession planning to ensure that schools within and beyond the partnership can continue to be effectively led and managed

• Engage in research and development work that contributes to a more evidence based approach to school improvement.

Colchester County High School for Girls is part of the strand leadership for Research and Development (R&D) across the partnership schools. The R&D is school based and designed to meet the needs of the individual, the school, the Alliance and the National Agenda. A system of accreditation for this research is in place making R&D a worthwhile and vital part of any schools drive for continuous improvement.
