  • The Big Build
    The Big Build

    We would like to thank everyone in the school and local community for their patience and support during our extended period of building work.   The new Sixth Form Centre with its separate entrance atrium, ICT suite, lecture theatre and common room is now in use along with the new classroom bases, one of which is our Healthy Living studio.   As the first stage of the Big Build draws to a close, from the Healthy Pupils Capital Fund we have been awarded funding to improve our swimming pool facilities – this project will include an extended 25m indoor swimming pool with changing rooms.  We are also tremendously fortunate, through our own fundraising and the generous support of parents and the PTFA, to be able to provide an additional, and much needed multi-functional hall which will incorporate the new swimming pool.  We are absolutely delighted that our students will be rewarded with first class facilities to match their outstanding achievements.

A team of Year 12 students will represent the UK at the European Youth Parliament after winning a national competition.  They beat 179 schools in the National Selection Conference after debating issues including franking, human trafficking and the energy market.

The winning team is Bethany Appleton, Hanna Banks, Scarlett Blacker, Ella Blaxill, Ellen Docherty, Ffion Davies, Serena Long, Charlotte Roberts and Millie Smith.

The girls will travel to Finland for the international session next July.

The following students in our Year 12 Art Group have been selected by the Dover Federation for the Arts to exhibit their work at the 12th National Students Art Exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London, under the patronage of the Royal Society of British Artists:

Hanna Banks (Swan Lake)
Abi Bartlett (At Rest)
Gabrielle Doughty (Sails in the Wind)
Bethany Francis (Tollesbury Shed)
Chloe Miles (In the Harbour)
Antonia Quashie (Alone Boat)
Jessica Underwood (Beach Huts)

Bethany Francis in Year 12 recently won the BBC One Show Art Competition.  She was selected from many entries to have a painting exhibited in the Royal Academy of Arts this Summer.  Bethany recently attended a private viewing of her work with her family.





A team of Year 11 Youth Health Champions have been working hard over the past year creating campaigns to deliver to the rest of the students at CCHS.  Their first campaign was promoting healthy eating, more specifically, a healthy breakfast.  They spent time with Year 8 and Year 9 students giving helpful sessions about risk awareness and body image.  Their final campaign was on combating stress.

We thank all the students for their hard work and positive impact.

On Thursday 20th February a team of three students travelled to Queen Mary University in London to compete in the first round of Royal Society of Chemistry Schools Analyst Competition.

The day comprised of several different experiments to test both practical ability and the students' ability to analyse results.  The girls won the round and are waiting to take part in the National Final at the University of Central Lancashire in June.

We wish them every success.

LEPRA - £3,000 raised

Lesley Gill from LEPRA returned to school on Friday 28th March for a special Year 7 assembly.  She announced that students had raised the highest sum ever collected in the ten years the school has been involved with LEPRA.  She presented a plaque to the school and there was an item, with photo, in the Gazette the following Monday.

Following on from this success Lesley has asked that four Year 7 students feature in a very short film that she will present at LEPRA Head Office in London when the Director of the charity visits from India.  The students will be asked to describe what inspired them in particular about LEPRA's work and what fundraising activities they organised.

Year 13 left in style on Friday 16th May.  The girls, as always, made a tremendous effort with their costumes - there was colour and there were characters.  The girls were enthusiastic and talkative and, following the fancy dress parade, lunch was served.  The outstanding Year 13 then departed to commence further study at home.

We wish the class of 2014 every success in the future.

KitCrew are running summer camps for 5 to 12 year olds w/c 11th August and w/c 18th August 2014.  For further details please go to www.kitcrewcamps.co.uk.
