Welcome to Clacton Coastal Academy

Due to the weather forecast for next week we will be returning to full uniform rules.

On Wednesday 28th March Generation Medics came into the school as part of our Employability day, to deliver exciting healthcare sessions to Y8-13 pupils who were interested in careers in health. The workshops were designed to inform the pupils about the different careers that are available in health and the opportunities that are out there for them.

During the sessions, pupils had a variety of fun activities to get involved in, from discovering where different health careers fit within the NHS to hands-on operating theatre sessions and finding out what life might be like as a health professional.
Generation Medics’ friendly team of health professionals were on-hand throughout the day to answer questions and offer handy insights to pupils.
The pupils really enjoyed the fun an engaging activities and saw the world of health in a new light!
