Curriculum Intent

The curriculum at Colchester County High School for Girls (CCHSG) is designed to enable students to be independent, resilient and ambitious learners who develop their knowledge and skills to be life long learners, successful, enjoy life and able to compete in a global economy.

CCHSG offers a broad and balanced curriculum which incorporates a curriculum matrix and wide range of choice. The CCHSG curriculum aims to promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of each student, incorporating cultural capital and prepares students for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. Timely information, advice and guidance is central to supporting students through the next stages of their education and career.

Our personalised curriculum is based on the National Curriculum and is enhanced by an expansive co-curricular programme. As changes to the National Curriculum occur and other educational initiatives come into force, the school incorporates them into the curriculum.

The school is committed to the principles and practice of equal opportunities across the curriculum, and will endeavour to ensure that every activity offered in the school is available to every student irrespective of ethnic origin, race, nationality, religion, disability or economic background.
