Head PhotoColchester High School is Colchester's only independent school for girls and boys aged 2½ to 16, uniquely able to offer an excellent family-friendly education to children and their siblings from nursery through to Year 11.

Our welcoming environment and combination of small classes and high-quality teaching allows us to give each child the individual attention they need to flourish. As a result, our pupils exceed national expectations at every level and perform consistently well at 11+ and GCSE.

The foundations of this success are laid in our all-year-round Nursery, where our experienced practitioners engage each child with an individually targeted blend of free-flowing play and formal learning in phonics and maths. It is built on in our Lower School, where we offer a broad curriculum designed to help each pupil progress at the right speed. And it is completed in our Senior School, where our subject-specialist teachers help pupils meet our high expectations.
Our individualised focus reaches beyond the classroom to take in the worlds of sport, music, the arts and more. We take advantage of the fantastic facilities on site and in the local area to offer an exceptionally varied extracurricular programme so that every child can explore all of their talents.

This all-round excellence is recognised in our recent school inspection and is reflected in the happy faces of our pupils. To see for yourself, or to learn more, please visit www.colchesterhighschool.co.uk or contact admissions on 01206 217116.

Please note that scholarships are available for entry into Year 7 of our Senior School.
