At New Rickstones Academy, we are passionate about learning. A creative and dynamic academy, we deliver a broad, balanced, personalised and rigorous education that prepares students for the challenges and opportunities of living and working in the 21st century. 

New Rickstones Academy has approximately 650 students on roll and has held specialisms in Arts and Maths. In 2013, the academy recorded its best ever results.

In February 2012, the academy moved into its new state of the art £25 million building, which provides an outstanding environment for teaching and learning. With the move into the new buildings, the academy is confident that the upward trend in achievement will continue. 

The academy holds Investors in People accreditation, and was one of the first schools in the country to be awarded the Inclusion Quality Mark (IQM)– a quote from the IQM report stated, “Making Our Best Better” is a motto seen at every AET academy. At New Rickstones Academy, this goes far beyond mere words. The drive really is for every child, whatever their background, ethnicity, gender or learning difficulties, to make the most of their opportunities and abilities in whatever they are engaged.” 

The academy also holds the ArtsMark accreditation and is proud of its numerous and eclectic programme of drama, music  and dance performances.  New Rickstones’ commitment to the Witham Twinning Association is cemented by our music students performing in Germany for the annual Reunification Ceremony.  

The academy is located in Witham, a  market town in North Essex, equidistant between the county town of Chelmsford and the oldest town in England, Colchester. A main line train service runs to London Liverpool Street (35 minutes) and the coastal areas of Essex are within close proximity.

We are proud of our staff, our students and of their achievements and believe that motivating and supporting our staff is the key that underpins innovative teaching and learning. We offer extensive professional development opportunities, as well as a non-contributory private health scheme to all contracted members of staff.

We are delighted to welcome  the AET National Teaching School Alliance onto our campus, allowing our staff to access specialised support and training on our doorstep. Also on our site is an independent private nursery school offering competitive rates to staff at the academy.

Prospective candidates are warmly invited to visit the academy.
