The Ramsey Academy

The Ramsey Academy is a successful comprehensive school situated in Halstead, Essex, serving the town and local villages, catering for students aged 11 – 16 years.

The Ramsey Academy gained academy status in August 2013 when it became part of the North Essex Multi Academy (NEMAT). NEMAT consists of two schools: Notley High School & Braintree Sixth Form and The Ramsey Academy, Halstead. The overarching aims of the NEMAT are to pursue educational improvement for students across the North Essex area and to engage with other schools and education providers to achieve this.

We are a partner school in the established and successful initial teacher training provider within the Mid Essex Initial Teacher Training Consortium (MEITT) which each year successfully trains between 50 – 75 teachers across a wide variety of subjects. We are committed to ensuring that all our staff have access to the highest quality Continual Professional Development (CPD) and this has enabled the school to develop its quality of teaching and learning over time.
