Year 7 Positive Points!


Well it has been a busy start back with so much going on. First I would like to congratulate everyone who has been logging hours through the Children’s University. 
I have hand signed 108 letters to parents of the children who have banked over 20 commendations so far this year and sent out many positive attendance letters over the half term break. Well done to everyone. I will be sending out more letters of congratulations very soon. Some of our other stars have been the children who have the most positive points so far this year. Below are the names: 


Really well done and keep it up. 

Anti-Bullying week was a very high profile event last week with lots activities and events taking place. We have the Courage to Care awards running so if you see any CCA 
students in Year 7 being helpful and supportive, I and the rest of the year staff would love to hear about them. Also next week we are starting to have a think about some 
charity events after Christmas which year 7 will be taking an active part in. Details to follow! 

Have a good week.

Year 7 Achievement Director 

Year 8 Hampton Court Trip

I am writing to congratulate the Year 8 students on being part of a very successful Hampton Court 2013 Trip with Clacton Coastal Academy! I would like to take this 
opportunity to say what a pleasure and a privilege it was to accompany all of the 202 Year 8 students who attended Hampton Court this year; their behaviour was wonderful 
and the enthusiasm they demonstrated throughout the trip was exemplary. Indeed, different members of the public spoke to the staff to say what a lovely group of young 
people they were. A big thanks must go to all staff who attended as well, for their support throughout the day, because without such committed staff we would be unable to run such wonderful trips. However, the final thanks must go to the students, who were nothing short of an absolute delight to accompany. 

Well done 8PIC 8IGHTS!

Year 9 Class of Your Own


Wow, what a week. We had our first Class of Your Own  experience where 100 year 9 students took on roles within  the build environment. We were supported by 5 members  of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors who we were  very lucky to have as sponsors . We were also joined by practising architects and landscape designers. Students had the brief to design an Eco class room. There  were 10 teams and each student within the team took on a  different task. At the end of the day each team had to present their ideas and a panel of judges then awarded a 1st, 2nd and 3rd position. The winning team “Eco-Efficiency” will attend a presentation in London next year at the home of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors where they will present their ideas to the Board. All students did an excellent job and the presentations were fantastic. Well done to every one involved. I look forward to telling you more about this great day next week.

Year 9 Achievement Director 


Year 10 Be Punctual

Congratulations for last week must go to 10SSL who managed to end the week with 100% attendance in their tutor group. This is a fab achievement – well done! The 
students in Year 10 are really starting to rise to the ‘attendance challenge’ at the moment and we are improving on an almost weekly basis. 

The students are still working towards their ‘November challenge’ in the hope of being able to take part in our Christmas Party in December. The students need to make sure that they have: 

• No less than 100% attendance 
• No late gates 
• No uniform concerns 
• No negative comments on Go4schools. 

The Year team are thoroughly looking forward to celebrating the Festive season with all the successful students. Punctuality is extremely important in order that our students 
don’t miss out on any learning at the Academy, so I would urge all students in Year 10 to set their alarm clocks for five minutes earlier than they usually do – you know who you are!

Year 11 Congratulations.


Even in this freezing cold weather, some of our Year 11 boys  still wanted to get outside on the rugby pitch for a game. Whilst we think they are completely mad, we want to 

congratulate them! At a time when stress levels are rising for Year 11 as they preparing for their mock exams in December, it is great to see that they can still find time to 

have some fun…….
