Why choose 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.

There has never been a more exciting time to be a student at our school. Our high expectations filter into every aspect of school life, which is evident in not only the high quality teaching our students receive, but also in the inspirational, warm and caring environment in which they learn.

Our students consistently achieve good GCSE results year-on-year and we are on a steady path of positive progress. In 2019 we were rated as ‘Good’ by Ofsted and we are now on a journey of excellence where we aim to compete with the very best schools.

I am extremely proud to lead a talented and dedicated team who know no bounds when it comes to the successes of our students. Our staff are committed to getting to know each child as an individual to ensure they are supported and challenged to bring out the very best of their abilities.

There is so much more to Easington Academy than what happens in the classroom. We offer many exciting extra-curricular activities, where there’s something for everyone regardless of ability. Our aim is to ensure that when our students leave us, they do so with happy memories and as confident individuals ready to make their mark on the world.

Choosing a school for your child is an important decision and I am delighted that you are considering Easington Academy. I warmly invite you to take a look throughour prospectus which is designed to give you an insight into who we are and what we have to offer.

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.

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.
