Information about the School

CCHS is a large, popular and inclusive 11-19 comprehensive school that sits in the heart of our community. We operate across two sites, with colleagues teaching both at Walton Road (11-16) and our sixth form college (16-19), Sigma Sixth, based at the Tendring Education Centre.

As a school we have very high expectations of our students in terms of their academic and personal development. We strive to raise the aspirations of all our students to believe that, with hard work and commitment, there should be no barriers as to what can be achieved. We want our students to think big, dream big and become the very best version of themselves. A CCHS education transforms lives and we are very proud of our students and our community.

Our PROUD ideals permeate the school. At CCHS students are encouraged never to give up. They are expected to take responsibility for their actions whilst embracing the opportunities on offer. We believe that together we are stronger, developing a sense of community; school, local and global. We teach our students the importance of community whilst accepting and respecting our differences and being open to the views and ideas of others.

Our school rules are simple, we expect every student to be: Ready, Respectful, Safe. Our behaviour policy was devised by staff and students to ensure that it supports students to make good choices and become the best version of themselves.

The curriculum at CCHS is thoughtfully considered and sequenced to ensure that all students are supported with the acquisition of knowledge and the development of skills. We aim to ensure that all students are prepared for their next steps and have a deep understanding of themselves so that when they leave us they have the academic and life skills plus the confidence to move onto highly aspirational careers and destinations.

Many of our students continue their post-16 studies at Sigma Sixth, our college. The college has around 400 enrollments and is large enough to have a genuine college feel but small enough to ensure that every student is known as an individual. There are over 30 subjects on offer to cater for the interests and aspirations of all students alongside a great enrichment programme. The Sigma Sixth experience is designed to allow our students to self-discover where they want to go and what they want to be, they are the architects of their own futures. The Sigma Sixth tagline of 'Discover Yourself, Define Your Future' reflects the entire ethos of our commitment to our students. Every year we continue to be amazed and inspired by the careers and University destinations of our college students.

At both CCHS and Sigma Sixth, we believe that our staff are the most important resource we have to deliver a holistic education. Our CPD programme is designed to nourish staff and to enable them to develop professionally and personally. Quite simply we believe that the more skilled and expert our staff are, the more effectively they can educate our students. Safeguarding
