Lunch for Year 7 and 8 will run as normal, however this could be accessed by Year 9 before they leave and for Year 10 and 11 students on free school meals.

Christmas Lunch

We would also like to take this opportunity to let you know that we will be holding our annual Christmas lunch and Christmas jumper charity event on Monday 18th December.  Please note that this will be the only hot food on offer on this date.  There will be a limited number of sandwiches available for students to buy if they do not wish to have the set meal.  The cost of the Christmas Lunch will be £2.24 per meal (this matches the Free School Meal allowance) and will include:

Traditional Christmas Lunch

  • Roasted Turkey served with pigs in blankets, roast potatoes, seasonal vegetables and gravy
  • Christmas Pudding served with custard
  • Cuplet drink or small bottle of water
  • A vegetarian option will be available

Christmas Jumper Day

We combine Christmas lunch with our charity Christmas jumper day event. Students are invited to wear Christmas jumpers instead of blazers for the day. Collection buckets and a festive atmosphere will welcome the students as they arrive in the morning. We hope all students will participate in this festive fundraising event for a charitable cause.

The staff of Clacton Coastal Academy would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support of our students throughout the last year.  

Students will return to the Academy on Thursday 4th January 2018.

We wish you and your families a happy, healthy and safe Christmas and New Year.

Yours sincerely,

S. Young

Year 11 Awards Evening

Little Mix - Glory Days 2017 tour

This Academic year we have been fortunate enough to continue our links with television producer Virginia Baker. On the 26th November 2017, our partnership led to four lucky year 9 students being invited to a VIP experience at the 
Little Mix, Glory Days tour at the O2 arena.

Justine Hawes, Amba Elliott, Denis Visockas and Lewis Grant had a fantastic time looking backstage and learning about the job roles of the 200 different team members who make the show a success. 

We have also potentially arranged for Dance Captain Claudimar Neto, to come to the Academy to deliver a workshop to our students!

Justine, “It was awesome to come to London... my first trip to the O2, to have dinner in a restaurant and to watch a concert. Thank you Virginia!”

Amba, “It was amazing to watch the show come together after seeing the details backstage.”

Denis, “I liked seeing the different jobs you can apply for and what role they have on the actual performance.”

Lewis, “I loved going backstage and talking to the dancers. I 100 % want to be like them one day.”
