About The Ramsey Academy
The Ramsey Academy is a co-educational academy school based in Essex for students aged 11-16.
Values and vision
The Ramsey Academy’s house system is designed to stimulate healthy competition and to ensure a sense of belonging throughout the school with the aim of raising the achievement and confidence of all pupils.
To develop students’ independent, creative, reflective, and collaborative learning, the school curriculum is supported by Skills Days in which personal learning and thinking skills are highlighted in cross phase projects.
The school aims to ensure students’ talents and interests are nurtured and developed over a wide range of areas. It therefore provides a wide range of sporting activities and competitions, expressive arts shows, leadership courses, subject specific clubs and several cultural trips and visits.
The school also places a heavy emphasis on preparing students in the best way possible for life beyond The Ramsey Academy. For instance, all students are given expert independent careers guidance. The school also works alongside further and higher education providers and employers to ensure students are given greater choice when it comes to their progression from the school.
“Inspection evidence indicates that students achieve well. Students across year groups make good progress in a wide range of subjects, including English and mathematics. The academy’s accurate tracking system, and the effective support it provides for individual students, have led to rapidly improving progress by disabled students and those who have special educational needs. Teaching is improving and is, for the most part, consistently good.”
