CCHSG is delighted to announce that following the publication by the Department for Education of the figures for last year's GCSE results, according to the Telegraph ranking, CCHSG students performed the best nationally in 2018. The school shared this top slot with Queen Elizabeth's School, Barnet. These figures are based on the percentage of pupils achieving five or more A*-C/9-4 grades, combined with the DfE's Progress 8 measure.

If a student makes the progress expected, the school’s Progress 8 score is 0.0. A score of 0.5 means pupils made, on average, half a grade more progress across their subjects than expected. CCHSG has a Progress 8 score of 1.22, which is particularly pleasing given that students join us already achieving at a high level.
We are extremely pleased for our students and truly grateful for the support provided by our staff, students, parents, carers and governors.
CCHSG is one of only 16 grammar schools, across 12 counties in England to have been given a share of the Department for Education's £50m selective school expansion fund. The fund supports the expansion of selective schools that have plans to improve access for students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
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.
The Governing Board of Colchester County High School for Girls is pleased to announce that, after an extensive consultation process, we will be forming a multi academy trust (MAT) the “Alpha Trust”, working with The Gilberd School. The Trust will also ultimately include the Trinity Free School to be built in North Colchester.
