  • 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.

Year 7 Music Students are working on Gamelan Music for their topic this term. Students have learnt about the culture and the instrumentation and have performed a traditional Javanese Gamelan piece. They have composed their own Gamelan pieces and have designed and made their own traditional Gamelan Headdresses. All year 7 students made a headdress and entered the Music department competition. The standard of the headdress were excellent, well done to all year 7 students.

The following students won first prize.

On Friday 31st January the Music department were thrilled that Karl Lutchmayer Professor of Performance studies at the Trinity College of Music and world renowned  Concert Pianist,  spent a day working with A level music students in preparation for their A level Recital examination in March. He was inspirational and the students learnt so much. In the evening he gave one of his exceptional conversational concerts which had his biggest audience yet. We look forward to him returning again in June this year.

British Biology Olympiad results

16 upper 6th biologists sat the British Biology Olympiad at the end of January. This is very challenging with content going beyond the A Level specification in a wide range of biological topics. The results for 2014 were outstanding with 4 gold medals, 6 silver medals, 2 bronze medals and 4 highly commended students, all students were placed. This puts all of the CCHS students in the top 49% of the 5076 students who sat the test, an outstanding achievement.
2 students are through into the 2nd round of the final 160, they are in the top 3% of students who entered. Congratulations and Good Luck to Sian O'Shea and Abigail Stubbs.
The top 4 students in the UK will go on to represent the UK at the International Biology Olympiad in Bali - a great incentive for our 2 students!




"This has been an amazing term, with so much to celebrate".

Many thanks to all of the parents who have written to us to compliment the school on an outstanding, interesting and motivational GCSE Certificate
Giving Evening. In my introduction to the event, I explained how proud we are of the girls, their success and the superb Sixth Form they have become.
Steve Brown, the Paralympic Rugby Team Captain, delighted us all with his humorous, emotional and inspirational speech with both openness and
positivity. He gave us his life story, including his accident, which resulted in his disability. He has turned this difficult situation into one of hope,
developed a future career and has maintained a very mischievous sense of humour. His take on life infected all of us and many of the girls were inspired and felt more resilient as a result.

On Tuesday 8th October, CCHS hosted the annual District Netball Tournament. Teams from 12 local schools came together to compete for the prestigious title of ‘District Champions 2013’. The POOL matches saw our girls come up against some tough opposition but both the U14 and U16 teams successfully progressed to the semi-finals and fought their way to the final where they came head to head with Stanway. Our U16’s were once again victorious and our U14’s finished as runners-up. Both teams will progress to the County Round, taking place at New Hall on Sunday 17th November and we wish them the very best of luck. Thank you to the Year 10 Junior Sports Leaders team who did an absolutely superb job overseeing the running of the event.

We were delighted when three of our students received prizes in this annual competition which celebrates poetic talent in Essex. In the 14 and under section, Beth Wright in 8JM received a highly commended for her poem, 'Ten Things found in an Old Countess' Wardrobe'; Beth Coiley also of 8JM received third prize for her poem, 'Moondance' and Britanny Lodge of 9VC received first prize for her poem 'Draw It.' Many congratulations to these students.
