We have received the provisional national data from the Government.  I am pleased to say that Maltings Academy has been ranked in the top 10 for achievement, compared to similar schools.  This is a fantastic success for the students and staff.  The Essex Commissioner has also written to us recently in praise of the Academy's wonderful result.  It is nice to be recognised for the work that goes on in the Academy.
