Easington Academy is situated in the picturesque village of Easington, County Durham. Originally the school was formed as a merger between Easington Secondary Modern School and Murton Secondary Modern School in 1978 to become Easington Comprehensive school. The school was awarded Specialist Science and Mathematics status in September 2007.
Throughout the many changes in the local community, resulting in the end of a proud mining heritage, the school’s aim has been constant – to provide the best education for all students at Easington.
Easington Village is conveniently situated to the east of the A19 trunk road with easy access to many sites of natural beauty, and within easy access of the large towns of Sunderland, Durham and Hartlepool. Local shops are situated in Easington Colliery and the neighbouring Peterlee with some actually situated in the village.
