Welcome to Chelmsford County High School for Girls

A proud and progressive grammar school community, committed to excellence in girls' education and empowerment since 1907. Our vision of developing the leaders of tomorrow is evident in our commitment to the pursuit of excellence. In achieving their individual potential our students make a valuable contribution to the local and global community.

Welcome from the Headteacher

The pastoral wellbeing and academic development of our students are our prime responsibilities

Chelmsford County High School for Girls (CCHS) is a proud grammar school community. CCHS was opened in 1907 to provide girls with an academic education. We, as the twenty-first century guardians of this significant inheritance, have chosen to honour this legacy by defining and pursuing an ambition for CCHS to be a progressive grammar school, committed to excellence in girls’ education and empowerment:

  • We are pioneering – increasing to six forms of entry from September 2020, we hold to a determination to achieve greater social diversity as our community grows and evolves. Working with our increasing number of partner primary schools, we share our expertise regarding teaching able students from all backgrounds to ensure that talent and aspiration are served.
  • We are engaged – teaching & learning practice is strengthened by working with the National Association for Able Children in Education (NACE), with leadership & management practice being developed through our work with the Prince’s Teaching Institute (PTI).
  • We are dynamic – students are provided with a wealth of opportunities, as we work with the Association of State Girls’ Schools (ASGS) in Britain and the National Coalition of Girls’ Schools (NCGS) internationally, to instil confidence, fire ambition and promote advancement.

 

We are a culturally diverse and socially inclusive school community. Our students bring with them an enriching variety of backgrounds and traditions

We have amplified, and so fortified, our School vision and aims, and pursue links between Faculties, to cultivate core values, which direct and drive our work: citizenship, meritocracy, challenge, duty, imagination, enlightenment and tolerance.

We work hard to provide our students with a safe, caring and stimulating learning environment, as we write the next chapter in the life of CCHS. This is both our obligation and privilege as we serve and innovate in the spirit of our School motto: Vitai Lampada Ferimus (We Bear the Torch of Life).
