Welcome from the Headteacher

A Colchester High School education develops creative and inquisitive minds, preparing pupils who are ready to shape tomorrow’s world.

At Colchester High School, we offer all our pupils from 2 to 16 an excellent education that prepares them to be the global change-makers of the future. Whilst our pupils attain excellent academic results, we also provide an education which offers something far deeper and far more lasting, one which places a central importance on character development whilst nurturing a global perspective and a mindfulness for social responsibility which will last throughout their lives. It is an education focused on building a bright future for all.

Our small class sizes, excellent teaching and regular assessment and tracking mean we can create an individualised learning programme that gives each child the confidence they need to achieve their full potential. Combined with our enriching and forward-thinking STEAM curriculum and digital literacy mastery programme, a Colchester High School education develops creative and inquisitive minds, preparing pupils who are ready to shape tomorrow’s world.

Beyond the classroom, our emphasis on pupil ‘voice and choice’ promotes leadership, character development and provides an extensive extra-curricular and trips programme, which encourages our pupils to widen their horizons, care for the world around them, value different perspectives and to give back to the community.

All our pupils, from Year 3 to 11, are provided with a 1-2-1 device and as a school we have embraced the transformations in educational technology to ensure that our pupils have the digital skills required to be ready for the 21st century workplace. Colchester High School are proud to announce that they have recently been awarded Microsoft Showcase Incubator School status.

I passionately believe that good quality education has the power to change the lives of all individuals and I look forward to helping our pupils reach their full potential and to become confident, active and conscious citizens of tomorrow’s world.
