About Us

About Us

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

Record breaking results and continual improvement over the last three year 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.

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’.
