University of essex online application form
We are proud of the fantastic achievements of our school and it's students.We have also seen an increase in students gaining places at top universities including Russell Group and the Sutton Trust.We believe that you not only need good grades but opportunities to develop the 'soft skills' such as a strong work ethic, positive attitude, good communication, good at time management and good problem solving skills.These are the core competencies that employers and universities require.As well as experienced teaching from teachers within the six schools, students also experience university style lectures and seminars from leading academics which will include fascinating research relating to their subject.As part of the programme, the University also supports students considering Higher Education after their A-levels, including their choices, advising on student finance, support and advice in applications and personal statements.
Assessments are provided for students and parents each term and two consultation evenings are held during the year.
The students meet two or three times per week with their personal mentor who supports their learning, progress and career choices.
The careers advisor and support assistant offer an "Open door " approach to students but individual interviews can be arranged and referrals are made to connexions and other external agencies on request.
At CCHS we have excellent facilities that can help with independent study.
Students have access to resources across the school including library, ICT and study facilities together with specialist facilities such as Media, Drama and Production suites, Dance and Performance areas, Science Laboratories, a Fitness Suite and Climbing Wall.
