Welcome to Easington Academy

At Easington Academy we have high expectations of our students and staff. We believe students have the right to expect a first class education, delivered by teachers who are committed to making learning challenging and rewarding.

Ours is a caring community, one based on mutual respect, a school where students feel safe and supported throughout their time with us. The emphasis on good behaviour means that lessons are taught in an ordered and encouraging learning environment. Students are treated as individuals and we recognise and celebrate their different abilities.

Students will have access to the latest technology and will benefit from innovative teaching strategies, ones designed to engage their interest and make their learning experience a positive one. They will also be given the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of extra-curricular activities. In this we hope to ensure that all of our students achieve their full potential, academically and socially.

When our students leave us, we want them to have enjoyed their five years at Easington Academy. This means leaving with the best possible results and taking with them a store of happy memories.

Easington Academy

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

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.

I have been amazed with my time at Easington so far, I have made lots of new friends and the Year 11 students have been so kind and helpful, especially the prefects.
