I am delighted to welcome you to our new Orsett Heath Academy website and to share a little insight into the special year ahead.

Orsett Heath Academy opened its doors to our first cohort in September 2020 and it is something everyone associated with the school is very much looking forward to. It is an important and special first year when pupils, staff and parents will establish an exciting and ambitious ethos of high expectations and achievement together.  Our first year groups will play a pivotal and historic role in establishing Orsett Heath as an excellent school for the community it serves.

All the fundamentals  that underpin achievement in an excellent school will be in place from day one at Orsett Heath; high expectations, a broad and balanced curriculum, first class teaching by experienced teachers, strong pastoral care, an exceptional extra curricular offer and a strong sense of community.
We are in the privileged position to be establishing the school within a mile of our partner Trust secondary school, William Edwards, and we will take full advantage of the expertise and experience that this unique geographical proximity will avail. We will work closely with William Edwards whilst developing our own strong ethos and culture of success.
Partnership working will form a key part of our ethos and development; indeed, being able to locate our interim site at the home of Thurrock Rugby Football Club (TRFC) emphasises this. We look forward to strengthening our relationship with TRFC further and ensuring that the pupils and whole community benefit from this unique relationship and large green field site.
We very much welcome visitors to Orsett Heath and the pupils and staff will very much look forward to meeting you should you pay a visit.
