About Clacton Coastal Academy and the AET Trust 

The Academy is on an accelerated journey of improvement under the leadership of a Principal and new Executive Principal. 

January 2019 has seen the launch of new key school improvement systems:

  • New behaviour system
  • New rewards system
  • New uniform policy
  • New conduct card system (corridor conduct, punctuality and homework)
  • New approach to Teaching and Learning

The aim is for Clacton Coastal Academy to achieve ‘Good’ by September 2020 in its next full section 5 OFSTED inspection. The Academy was judged to ‘Require Improvement’ in March 2018.

Teaching and Learning is a passion of all our staff and we believe it is the key to school improvement. When every teacher is delivering outstanding learning day in day out, when every teacher truly loves their subject, has a sense of humour and makes learning fun, and when every teacher knows the detail and nuances of the exam specifications to deliver top notch results, then, genuine sustainable school improvement will take place. We are passionate about ensuring every classroom is filled with this type of teacher.
