All students are provided with a wide body of knowledge, skills and experiences to develop an exceptional character, flourish academically, and lead a happy and remarkable life.


Mastery is defined as ‘fluency with the unfamiliar’ and we lead our students to this through the Mastery Flow Model. This is underpinned by an ambition and commitment for them to be their best version and realise their potential.


Student character development is underpinned by curiosity, confidence, and resilience. It ensures students are fully prepared to succeed in today’s world and tomorrow’s future whilst also encouraging a mindset to do the right thing when no-one is looking.


Perspective is about being open-minded, having compassion, challenging wrongs, and promoting what’s right. The entire Academy will have pride in their communities and embrace all opportunities beyond the classroom and into the wider world.

Y 11 Progress Evening 2021

Farewell to the Class of 2021

Teenagers who missed out on a special farewell due to pandemic restrictions have returned to their secondary school. Last year’s Year 11 students from New Rickstones Academy, in Witham, were treated to a delayed leavers day, months after they finished their schooling.

When they had completed their lessons last academic year, they simply went home as restrictions meant they could not celebrate in the traditional ways.

Now, they have marked the end of their secondary school days with an assembly, a BBQ, fairground rides and inflatables – as well as the traditional shirt signing.

In the evening, the former students glammed up for their delayed prom.

Head of school Simon Gibbs said: “We had a fantastic turnout, with 90 per cent of the year group returning for leavers day. The fact they wanted to come back and spend time with their friends and teachers is testament to the mutual respect and relationships they built here.

“This was an opportunity to have students back to celebrate their successes, have some well-earned fun and to give them a good send-off.

“They had a tough road being off of school for all of those months and not knowing what they would be facing with regards to exams.

“It was fantastic to have them back in school; they had instantly matured from Year 11 students to young adults. At the end of the prom, they just did not want to leave as they were enjoying being with their friends and teachers.”
