Admissions Process

Though we have needed to change the way we are working, our admissions team are still on hand to discuss the needs of your family.


Thank you for your interest in our school. During this time, we are changing the way we are working to provide parents with the peace of mind that they can still plan for their child’s educational future.

We hope that our website and prospectus give you a flavour of what the school has to offer.

In the first instance, please do get in touch with our Admissions Team via our enquiry form, tell us more about your child and let us tell you more about our Admission Process, our school and what we have to offer.

Mrs Hilton can be called on 01206 217116 or emailed at admissions@colchesterhighschool.com.

We look forward to meeting you, albeit in the virtual world for the time being.

Step 1

Make an Enquiry & View Our Prospectus

Tell us a little about your child by filling in our enquiry form where you can also request a copy of our prospectus. Our Admissions Team will be in touch to discuss your interest in the school.

Step 2

Attend an Online Event

Unfortunately due to the current situation you will not be able to visit the school in person, but we will be arranging virtual events that we hope will still provide you with a strong understanding of what the school has to offer.

Step 3

Meet the Headteacher Virtually

Our Admissions Team will be happy to arrange a virtual meeting with the Headteacher to discuss the needs of your child and explain more about our educational offering.

Step 4

Application & Assessment

If you would like to proceed with an application, we may ask your child to complete an online assessment and/or meet the Head. This can be arranged as we continue to speak throughout the process.  The application deadline for September 2022 is the 30th November 2021.

Our application deadline for the academic year 2020 has now passed. However, occasional places may arise; please contact our Admissions Team at your earliest convenience on 01206 217116.
