*** Ofsted 'Good' school

The school is a popular and successful 11-18 mixed comprehensive school in Canvey. The school is blessed with quite spectacular new purpose-built teaching spaces.

The catchment area is very local with the majority of students able to walk to school and this means they draw from a small number of feeder primary schools. Strong consortium links also exist with the other local secondary and primary schools. The school are consistently over-subscribed with 8 forms of entry.

Academically, attainment is high and students make good progress at the School. The proportion of students passing five or more GCSE at grades A* - C (including English and maths) and making at least three levels of progress in English and maths far exceeds national expectations.

Ofsted reported students' behaviour as "outstanding" and their achievement as "good". Leadership and management at all levels are "good".

The Governing Body, which represents a broad range of interests and backgrounds, has a clear committee structure and provides strong and sensible challenge.

If the above sounds of interest, please apply without delay.
