Description of the school – Chelmsford High School for Girls

Chelmsford County High School is a highly selective grammar school drawing girls from a wide area around Chelmsford. It has specialist college status in three areas: technology with mathematics and science; English and music; and languages. Competition for places is fierce; applicants take an 11+ examination with one in five being admitted. Students join from around 70 primary schools and significant numbers join from the private sector. None of the students is known to be eligible for free school meals and none is looked after by the local authority.

None has a statement of special educational need and very few have learning difficulties or disabilities. One in five students are from minority ethnic groups and one in ten speaks English as an additional language. The vast majority of students continue their studies in the sixth form, where they are joined by about 20 who transfer from other schools.
