The Acadmey has a growing number of students who are finding the experience of school life overwhelming and this has led to them becoming school refusers or being so anxious that the daily activity of school is too much and their attendance has fallen dramtically.  There is a wealth of support for these within the Academy and through outdside agencies, however, this often has a limited impact on imporving attendance.  The first table display shows the impact this has on overall attendance when their data is taken out.

Highlights from the Class of 2018:

  • Highest percentage of student Premium (90%) going to college.
  • The increased attainment and aspirations of our students is demonstrated by the greater variety of high-quality colleges and sixth forms that students have gone to outside of Thurrock – especially the highest ever attending the London Academy of Excellence.
  • Increased variety of destinations
  • In recent years, the number of students who go on to apprenticeships with local and international companies has been the highest number of any school in Thurrock.  Apprenticeships in a wide range of sectors e.g. business administration, bricklaying, general construction, hairdressing, furniture manufacturing and upholstery, IT, equine, plumbing, leisure (lifeguard) and media.

Although it would appear that many of the above failed to make their expected grade in the core subjects, they were selected for the additional support group due to a variety of identified barriers to learning.  Without the intense support provided it is unlikely that they would have sat the full schedule of examinations, their achievements display resilience and determination that has developed as a result of skilled teaching
