As a non-selective school, we pride ourselves on the progress made by each pupil on their own individual learning journey.
We set the bar high for every pupil at Colchester High School, giving each of them the individual attention they need to stay motivated, work hard and achieve their full potential. The results they go on to achieve at Colchester High School and beyond are a source of pride to us all.
