Tendring Technology College (TTC) is a community where inspirational teaching, self-evaluation and self-improvement are evident from the moment you enter our school. We welcome all routes into teaching through School Direct, PGCE and we are a host school to Ambition School Leadership. 

Our students are diverse, exciting and talented – and the same is true of our staff.  We put huge emphasis on professional development, most of it in-house, and are proud of the high number of good and outstanding teachers who work in our school.    

Our dedicated teaching and support staff are very much part of the team and are part of the strong culture we have at TTC. 

We are also noted for our ‘can do’ attitude.  We are keen, always, to encourage new and/or young staff to make their mark as soon as they are ready. 

We are proud to serve the communities around Frinton-on-sea and Thorpe-Le-Soken  as an 11-18 school which has two campuses; Frinton Campus (14-18) and Thorpe Campus (11-14).  Ofsted judged us as a ‘good academy’ in March 2016.

In 2017 we celebrated 58% of our students obtaining 4+s in either English and maths.   We know that they can do even better. We want TTC to lead the way in teaching excellence and for all our staff and students to develop their maximum potential.
