Shakespeare by the Sea

09/10/17

CCW has joined forces with the Royal Shakespeare Associate School’s programme to celebrate and engage with the works of William Shakespeare.

Staff at the school will undergo training to deliver lessons on Shakespeare that are exciting, relevant and most of all active. “We believe”, said Ms Gee – Assistant Headteacher and Literacy Lead – “that the only way to teach Shakespeare is to actively engage with his words and ideas. Shakespeare wrote plays to be performed, to be heard, to be seen. We want to give our students the same experience so that they might fully enjoy and appreciate his works”.

The school is also excited that students will be able to take their knowledge and active approaches out into the community – performing at local venues and alongside other local schools. The school hopes to share its long-standing passion and commitment to the arts with the wider community.

Furthermore, students at The Community College Whitstable will soon be treading the boards of the internationally acclaimed Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-Upon-Avon, as they will have the opportunity to audition for a headline role in a schools’ production of Shakespeare’s supernatural Scottish play – Macbeth. Rehearsals in the school’s Shakespeare Club, named “Shakespeare by the Sea”, will also allow students to collaborate with local partners and earn a number of opportunities to perform as part of the wider RSC Associate School network.

The Royal Shakespeare Company is, arguably, the most famous modern producer of Shakespeare’s plays, having played host to a whole scope of British talent: from Sir Ian McKellen and Dame Judi Dench to Tom Hiddleston and David Tennant. The Community College Whitstable are incredibly proud that some of its students might have the same opportunities!

GCSE Results - 2017

25/08/17

We were pleased to see that so many pupils performed exceptionally well and rose to the challenge of the new ‘harder’ GCSEs in English and maths. A number of pupils achieved grade 8s in maths , there were also grade 7s and  8s in English Language and Literature. As in previous years, creative arts have secured remarkable results with 100% in textiles, 95% in fine art and 94% Cs and above in photography.

Headteacher, Ana Gibson was especially delighted, demonstrating that the school is moving in the right direction and has a solid platform for further improvement.

Special mention should be given to Holly Andrews, who secured grade 6s and 7s with the new more challenging GCSEs. Courtney Firminger secured grade 7 and 8s for her core subjects and A & A* grades for fine art, science, ICT and food technology. Dylan Small performed exceptionally well in Maths (grade 8) English (grade 6) and the triple sciences achieving AAA grades. Oscar Jackson also secured grade 8 in maths and an A for computer science.

Pupils, teachers and parents have all worked intensely for this moment and their hard work has paid off. An ice cream van was on site to provide cool refreshments as a ‘thank you’ to all.

Post 16 Results – 2017

18/08/17

Best Results Ever!

Students in the Sixth Form at The Community College Whitstable collected their exam results on Thursday 17th August 2017 and joined staff in celebrating their achievements in their A Level, AS Level and BTEC level 3 courses. Standards at the school continue to improve, highlighted by substantial progress in academic A Levels and excellent vocational results.

Improvements in academic A Levels are a result of the school ‘Putting Learning First’, with an increase in the percentage of students not only achieving their grades but also achieving higher grades in comparison with recent years. Vocational courses continue to be a real strength with an average grade of a Distinction being achieved by students across all subjects. 

As well as improving results for the whole cohort, there were some outstanding individual achievements. Hasita Haider, will be the first in her family to attend University, she achieved a Distinction* in all of her chosen subjects and has accepted a place at the University of Kent to study Cultural Studies and Social Anthropology. Chantelle Lloyd is another student who achieved Distinction* in all her courses and is now pursuing level 4 apprenticeship opportunities in Business. Logan Dean-Edwards is also blazing a trail to the University of Kent to study Computer Science, he achieved an impressive B grade in his A Level English Literature and Distinction* grades in his vocational subjects. Ruby Abercrombie is another student whose hard work resulted in excellent final outcomes, achieving a B grade in her A Level Textiles and Film Studies and a C grade in her English Literature course.

All students achieved good results, which is especially impressive given that the exams were more challenging than before.  The hard work and achievements of the students have led to a range of options and progression routes for students with some opting for university whilst others are undertaking apprenticeships and taking on employment traineeships.
