Welcome to CCSS. As Principal of CCSS I have a keen interest in every aspect of our college, and in the progress of each and every student. It is our mission to ensure that students benefit both through academic achievement and through personal development.

We deliver this consistently by having very high expectations of students and staff, by great facilities and learning opportunities, by ensuring that both course-specific and extra-curricular activities are inspiring, and by offering a level of personal support that we believe is almost unrivalled.

It is the nature of our students that makes CCSS unique. Our students all have high potential and they are inquisitive and ambitious. They want to learn and they want to achieve their personal goals. They develop responsible independence and demonstrate maturity in the way they manage this and respond to our support. Their aspirations differ … from becoming a fashion designer to a scientist, an author or a politician. Whatever their aspirations I am proud of all of our students and confident in their continuing success.

If this is the sort of student you want to be, please do come and talk to me.

Stuart Nicholson, MA (Oxon), MBA, PGCE, NPQH
