Upcoming Admissions Events

At Colchester High School we believe it’s important for children to want to be here. That’s why we regularly invite parents and children to visit our school.

Our next event “A Journey Around the World,” for pupils in Year 3 and 4 will be held on Saturday 5 February from 9.30am to 11.30am.   At Colchester High School, we believe that developing a global perspective is a key skill to succeed in the 21st century and we are looking forward to an exciting morning exploring cultural identity and diversity around the world through dance, art and digital exploration.  To book your child’s place, please contact our Admissions Manager, Susan Hilton on 01206 217 116 or email admissions@colchesterhighschool.co.uk.

Our next Open Morning will be held on Saturday 5 March from 10am – 1pm to provide prospective parents with an opportunity to learn more about our School.  The morning will include a welcome by the Headteacher, Ms Karen Gracie-Langrick and the opportunity to talk with staff and pupils and learn about our small, close knit community and individualised educational offering focussed on “Building A Bright Future for All”.
