Clacton Coastal Academy has received national recognition for the value it adds to students’ achievements at GCSE.

SSAT, the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust, recently undertook its annual in-depth analysis of official Department for Education data on all state-funded schools in England and identified Clacton Coastal Academy’s success.

The school has qualified for an SSAT Educational Outcomes Award by being in the top 20% of schools nationally for progress made by pupils between their key stage 2 results at primary school and their GCSE results at age 16.

Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said:

‘Clacton Coastal Academy should be congratulated for their exceptional achievement. They have proved themselves to be leading the field in improving GCSE outcomes for their students. There is so much good practice that this school could share, and I hope they will join us at the celebration evening for the chance to network and share strategies with award-winning schools.

‘These results are testament to the commitment and hard work of the students, teachers and leadership team at Clacton Coastal Academy, and show what can be achieved when skilled teachers have high expectations and ambition for every young person. I am proud that this school is a member of the SSAT network.’

Tracey Hemming, Principal at Clacton Coastal Academy commented:

“It is wonderful to be recognised for this achievement and is further proof of all we do here. We are committed to providing an excellent education for all our students and ensuring that they are given the best start for their future. We look forward to celebrating this success and sharing our good practice with other schools.’’
