Year 7 After School Clubs 


This week Mrs Rai has written a note about her form group—7KRA: 

7KRA are a lively and enthusiastic bunch of young people. They try their best to please and they work hard. Some of them have amazing amounts of commendations already. I see a bright future for them at CCA. 

Keep up the good work year 7, I hope to receive more good reports like this next week. 

Mr Davenport Year 7 Achievement Director 



Year 8 Starkey’s Curry 


On Monday 6th October our very own Zachery Starkey spent the day in the kitchens with our caterers. He produced lunch for the entire year group as well as many staff. 

He was an absolute credit to us and thoroughly enjoyed his experience. He received raving reviews from his peers and teachers. 

Congratulations Zachery! Go Super8's! 

Keep up the fantastic work super8's and don't forget to follow us on Twitter @super8CCA

Year 9 Mighty Nines 


This week saw the launch of the Respect Project – a project led by ‘Essex Boys and Girls Club’ that aims to develop students’ life skills and ability to work successfully as team. Fifteen students were selected to attend a workshop on Tuesday with a chance of being selected to attend the next phase of the project. I am absolutely delighted to congratulate; Kelsey Stemp, Elis-Rose Devlin-Walden, Holly Leather, Terry Smith, Jack Beeson and Louie Adams on securing a place on the next phase – well done! 

I thoroughly enjoyed spotlighting this week, particularly the ‘X’ band in Science – it was absolutely fabulous! Students were engaged in a variety of different tasks demonstrating fantastic behaviour for Learning – keep it up! 

As the weather turns, it’s really important to ensure students are prepared – particularly for PE. I would suggest on PE days, a spare pair of under garments is also brought in, just in case students get soaked right through! We can happily look after these for them in the Year Office. We have seen a lot of absence over the last week. It is important as we continue progressing towards options and career choices students maintain a high attendance. If your child is off, please remember to leave us a message on the Year Nine absence line. If you child is off for three days or more, the attendance team may require medical evidence. 

You should have by now received your child’s school photograph. If you would like to purchase your child’s picture, please complete the form with the appropriate money and drop it off to Mrs Funnell in Student Reception. 

Here’s to another successful week – keep following us on our ‘MIGHTY NINES’ twitter page @CCAYEAR8. Keep it MIGHTY!

Year 10 Students of the Week 


Every week in assembly, our Year 10 ‘Stars of the Week’ are highlighted and praised. Staff are asked the week prior to this to give feedback on particularly impressive students either in their classes or who have crossed their paths. These are our Year 10 stars from the past two weeks. We are extremely proud of them: 

“Both of my Year 10 groups are shaping up to be motivated and keen. This week there are some key players though: Hannah Dierkx: Lots of response to some challenging questions Micah Green: High level of self-motivation Kourtney Barker: Some very insightful comments Annie-May Kitchener: Just lovely!! Charlie Brandist: Very motivated.” Mrs Tate - 50 AD Vivos Awarded “Chloe Knight and Dylan Fisher have made an outstanding start in English. We have been preparing for our first piece of course work and their dedication and positive attitude to learning has enabled them to produce some fabulous writing thus far.” Miss Blagrove “My nominations go to: Jack Rosier, Josh Faulkner, Alex Coles, Jack Hagen, Daniel Kidley and Annie Hardwick for a FABU-LOUS start to History.” Miss Beach

Year 11 Revision Sessions 


Another busy week has been had in Year 11 this week. Students have been attending various revision lessons after school which really does demonstrate their determination to do well in all their subjects and really show what they are capable of. 

This week the students have spent tutorial time focusing on the local by election. Clacton has very much been in the spotlight over the last few weeks and it's been great to see students learning more about local candidates and showing understanding of their policies; as the future of Clacton, Year 11 students need to begin to understand the community that they live in and the issues in the community. 

Some students also took part in a Maths walk through day this week. The students showed great enthusiasm for this and worked hard to develop their understanding of mathematical concepts. Some Science students also spent time in workshops revising for their forthcoming exam - again, the enthusiasm and commitment shown by the students was a pleasure to witness.
