CCHSG one of the best in the country for student progress and attainment at GCSE

Colchester County High School for Girls has received national recognition for the value it adds to enable students’ high achievement at GCSE.

SSAT, the Schools, Students and Teachers Network, recently undertook its annual in-depth analysis of official Department for Education data on all 

state-funded schools in England and identified Colchester County High School for Girls’ success.  

The school has qualified for two SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards by being in the top 10% of selective schools nationally for high attainment, and the top 10% nationally for progress made by pupils between their key stage 2 results at primary school and their GCSE results at age 16.  The performance results were divided into deciles but in reality, key stage 4 value-added is in the top 3% and key stage 5 value-added is in the top 1%, this includes independent schools.

The school has been invited to receive their award at a regional celebration ceremony hosted by SSAT at Parkside Community College in Cambridge on 7 May.

Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said: ‘Colchester County High School for Girls should be congratulated for their exceptional achievement. They have proved themselves to be leading the field in improving GCSE outcomes for their students. There is so much good practice that this school could share, and I hope they will join us at the celebration evening for the chance to network and share strategies with award-winning schools.

‘These results are testament to the commitment and hard work of the students, teachers and leadership team at Colchester County High School for Girls, and show what can be achieved when skilled teachers have high expectations and ambition for every young person. 

“We are absolutely delighted to be receiving two awards from SSAT.  The value-added within the school, standing at 1043, is exceptional.   Thanks go to staff, governors and parents; girls are to be congratulated for their superb effort.”
