Welcome to Clacton Coastal Academy

Key Stage 5 Results Day

Clacton Coastal Academy welcomed another strong set of results, with the majority of students securing their first choice university places. A number of students have also gained full-time employment as a result of the substantial work placements undertaken alongside their qualifications.

Laura Leatherby, Assistant Vice Principal for Key Stage 5 said: "I am delighted with the results our students have achieved and the variety of destinations they have chosen to pursue, both at university and the world of work. Our goal is to prepare students to fulfil their potential and secure the best possible opportunities for further education or employment. These results are a testament to the incredible drive and hard work of our staff and students and I am certain that this is just the beginning of many very bright futures."

"This year marks the first set of results for our hugely popular Childcare Diploma. 86% of students obtained a B grade or above, which is a fantastic achievement, especially considering that students also had to undertake 750 hours of work experience to complete the qualification. We put a great deal of work into educating our students about the different careers available to them, so these results are excellent evidence of the positive impact having a clear future focus can have on student performance."

A significant number of students were also supported by IntoUniversity, an innovative programme that supports young people to attain either a university place or another chosen aspiration.

Key achievements:

Daniel Beck achieved a triple Distinction* in Creative Media and will go on to study Digital Film Production at the University of Suffolk.

Chloe O’Reilly achieved an A grade in Childcare and will study Early & Primary Education Studies at Anglia Ruskin University.

Kady Follon also achieved an A grade in Childcare and has been accepted onto the Childhood Studies course at The University of Essex.

Grace Fermor achieved an A grade in Childcare and has already secured a teaching assistant role at a local primary school as a result of her work placement.

Harry Collison achieved an A grade in the Design, Engineer, Construct qualification and has already secured employment at Dura Composites as a result of the work placement he had undertaken alongside his sixth form studies.

Ellie Gibson achieved a double Distinction and Merit in Business and has already secured an unconditional place at the University of Hertfordshire studying Marketing.

Liam Kirk achieved a double Distinction in Business and a grade B in his Institute for Fiscal Studies Diploma and will go on to study Business Management at The University of Essex.

Rebecca Knights achieved a B grade in Childcare and will go on to study Primary Education Studies at Anglia Ruskin University.

We are approaching the end of this academic year with our last day being Wednesday 24th July 2019. Students will have a final assembly at 11:45 and will be finishing slightly earlier on this day at 12.05pm.

We hope you have a happy, safe summer.





Dear parent/guardian,

With the summer holidays looming we hope your child will take this opportunity to relax and unwind in what has been a very busy year for year 10. The autumn term looks set to be equally busy with GCSE mocks and after school revision sessions taking place in the first term back. We hope that this will help prepare your child with the skills necessary to be successful in the 2020 series of GCSE examinations.

With this in mind, the Science, Maths and English Departments at Clacton Coastal Academy want to give your child the best opportunity at reaching their full potential in next year’s series of exams. In order to do so we have set some tasks through the new Doddle Learning platform for Science, Hegarty for Maths and on Seneca Learning for English to complete over the summer holidays. The homework is equivalent to approximately one hour per week and can be done all in one go or be revisited throughout the holiday. In English we recommend one hour of Seneca Learning revision over a week. This could be broken down into smaller periods of time over the week which will help to improve your child’s recall and retention of key information.

Your child will have already had a session logging onto Doddle during their science lessons in which they will have been provided their login credentials, and their Hegarty password is the same one they have used all year. All year 10 students have also created Seneca Learning accounts during the year and will be part of a classroom with their English teacher where they can find all the relevant revision activities.

We would like to thank you for your support and wish you a very happy and restful summer. Kind regards,

Mr D Cooper, Mrs L Witney, Mrs M Heffer,

Curriculum Leader of Science, Learning Director for Maths, Learning Director for English.
