Welcome to Colchester High School
Over the past 140 years Colchester High School has built up a reputation for providing an excellent all-round education whilst preparing our pupils for life beyond school.
Today that reputation still stands.
Through our inspiring teaching and forward thinking STEAM curriculum, we build in our pupils, ages 2½ to 16, the confidence, self-belief and strength of character to achieve their full potential whilst nurturing in them a global perspective and a mindfulness for social responsibility which will last throughout their lives. It is a community focussed on “Building a Bright Future for All”
The six key factors that combine to set our private school apart are:
Our Academic Success
Our boys and girls exceed national expectations in every age group and perform strongly at 11+ and GCSE – all the more impressive given that we are a non-selective school.
Our Focus on Character Development
In an ever-changing world, we are committed to providing an education that prepares our pupils for life in general and their future careers. Our extensive extra-curricular and trips programme, develops character and encourages our pupils to widen their horizons.
Our Global Perspective
Our pupils leave Colchester High School with a strong sense of citizenship, a respect for others and an understanding of the world around them.
A STEAM Focussed Curriculum
At Colchester High School, we offer a forward-thinking curriculum based on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics, to provide our pupils with the skills needed to tackle real world issues. Our pupils are curious, creative, critical thinking, problem-solvers, ready for tomorrow’s world.
Creating Digital Pioneers
Every pupil from Year 3 to Year 11 is provided with a 1-2-1 device, creating a culture of innovation, inspiring creativity and transforming learning through technology. We are a Microsoft Showcase Incubator School.
