    About Us

Welcome to The Ramsey Academy - one of the most improved schools not only in Essex but nationally.

Continual improvement over recent years show that our students are challenged and aspire to fulfil their potential. We are unique, because as a smaller secondary school students are known to all staff, who able to offer personal support and challenge when needed. But we are big enough to offer the range of opportunities to ensure our students leave us with a range of experiences to equip them with the skills for the next stage of their education and career.

Our aim is to be an inclusive, outstanding school at the heart of the community that fully engages with local people and organisations.

Our ethos is for students of all abilities and backgrounds to feel valued so that they can ‘be the best they can be’ and reach their full potential. The aims are for students:

To enjoy coming to school and learning experiences available to them

To be enriched with a wealth of opportunities inside and outside of lessons and the curriculum, so that all talents are identified and nurtured

To achieve high standards:
  • Academically - in terms of examination results
  • Personally - through their respect for others and their environment
  • Socially - through their contribution to the life of the school and wider community

We want our young people to be curious, challenged, display resilience and be prepared to take risks; in other words, develop a ‘growth mindset’ approach to learning and to not be afraid of failing, because we all learn from those experiences.

Please take the time to explore the website to find out more about us and appreciate the success our students achieve in a variety of activities. Explore the archives of the Ramsey Voice, our half termly newsletter to see the range of events in which we participate.

I am clear that the success of the Academy cannot be achieved without strong partnership between home and school; where we work together, developing our ‘shared ethos and values’ which support each other in delivering the best for students.

We would be delighted to welcome you for a personal tour during the normal school day.

Our message to students and staff is simple; ‘Be the best you can be’.
