Orsett Heath Academy is a brand-new secondary school for Thurrock opening in September 2020.
Orsett Heath Academy is a very exciting development for children in Thurrock as it will provide an additional 1,200 pupil places. Due to significant investment into the Thurrock area, there has been a large increase in the number of children attending primary schools and therefore, the new school will provide much needed secondary places to meet this growing demand.
The curriculum provided will be modelled on William Edwards’, with a specialism in sports and a strong approach to the arts. The academy will also be a school for the community and will provide learning for students and parents alike through its extra-curricular provision.
