    Sixth Formers Achieve Record Results

    CCHSG is delighted to announce that our Sixth Formers have achieved the best set of A Level results in the history of the school. 

    26% of all grades were A*, 62% of all grades were A*/A, and 88.5% of all grades were A*/B. 18 students gained 4 or more A & A* grades and 4 students gained 5 A & A* grades.  

    Every student has passed every examination taken and has achieved a minimum of 3 Advanced Level passes. We are extremely proud of the students and thank them for their tremendous contribution to CCHSG.  We wish them every success and happiness in the future.

  • 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.

CCHSG and The Gilberd School Announce the Formation of the Multi Academy “Alpha Trust”

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.

In forming a Multi Academy Trust, we sought partners who were like minded, with similar ethos and values, with whom we could share good practice.  By working collaboratively we aim to raise standards of achievement and expand the range of opportunities that we can offer our students.  We will also be able to provide greater opportunities for professional development for teachers, governors and school leaders.  Economies of scale also mean that together we can negotiate contracts and services that represent better value for money. The Governing Boards of the two schools share the ambition for their schools to provide an outstanding education for their students, while protecting each school’s role at the heart of its community and retaining its unique qualities and strengths.

The Headteachers of the two schools, Linda Exley and Gillian Marshall, announced that they were both excited by the potential opportunities that the formation of the Trust would offer and looked forward to working closely together to strengthen and develop links between their two school communities.
