Students will have a one hour timetabled lesson for this and are also expected to use extra study time to complete it.
The Extended Project Qualification gives students skills that both employers and universities are looking for; independent study skills, time management, research skills and writing skills.
This is why we offer a range of experiences including the opportunity to improve qualifications in the core subjects of English and Maths, and additional experiences in sport.
An annual Careers and Higher Education event supports students with UCAS and employment applications; work experience is available on request.At Clacton County High School we work with a range of partners to ensure that we offer the widest choice of courses.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.As part of our Sixth Form offer, students uptake the Extended Project.
This is an independent coursework project of the student’s choice and allows students to have an independent research task to discuss in interviews for work or for personal statements when applying to universities. It is an independent project that requires a lot of research into an ethical topic.
The Sixth Form Common Room is a place for relaxation at break and lunch time with its own canteen serving a selection of food such as paninis and coffees.
Students have regular access to a learning mentor, year leader, support assistant and careers advisors.
We work with each student to bring out their best attributes and seek to overcome any weaknesses.
Additionally we aim to strengthen each individual’s potential to achieve in the highly competitive world they will be entering, whether it is remaining in education at university, progressing to employment or an apprenticeship.
We are proud of the fantastic achievements of our school and it's students.
