A welcome from the Head of School, Ms S Zand

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Maltings Academy.

We are a co-educational secondary academy set up to provide an excellent education for children in Witham where we teach our students to work collaboratively and develop mutual respect for their peers, their teachers and members of the wider community. We teach students to take responsibility for their own learning and become independent, which is key to their success. Our academy is a remarkable place to learn, providing an ambitious but happy and inclusive environment. As well as strong pastoral support, we offer a broad and balanced curriculum that allows all students to succeed and enjoy their learning journey. As part of the AET, a highly successful national group of academies, our students also benefit from wider opportunities and resources.

At Maltings Academy, we have high expectations of our students of all starting points and abilities. For this reason, we offer a tailored learning experience so they can achieve beyond their potential, ensuring that students are challenged and supported equally in accordance with their needs. We are committed to deliver excellence to ensure we provide the youngsters of Witham a positive learning experience they will treasure and will lead them to greatness.

We know that our students will leave us academically successful, but we also want them to be well-rounded individuals with a highly developed moral compass, ready to lead in their communities and beyond. We expect our students and staff to give nothing except their very best in pursuit of making a difference to their lives and the lives of others around them.

Everyday, we guide students to be able to make a difference by being respectful of themselves and others, arriving at school with a readiness to learn and engage positively in their lessons. We support our students to develop and demonstrate resilience on their learning journey with us and have aspirations for them to become a generation we can all be proud of.

I would encourage you to visit us on our open days and take the opportunity to chat to our students and teachers about their experiences here. It really is a wonderful community school, with committed staff and we would be delighted to welcome you.

A welcome from the Executive Principal Mr Damian Lee

It was a great honour for me to be appointed as Executive Principal of the two superb academies in Witham. Both are progressing at a pace to further improve outcomes for the young people they serve and I know we will see some excellent results year on year.

We now have a wonderful opportunity for new beginnings and as Executive Headteacher, my expectations are for people to be happy in the academy, for everyone to be polite, smile and be courteous at all times.

I want students to enjoy their school life and be inspired by their lessons, whilst providing each one of them with the academic challenge that enables them to realise their potential. Alongside this, the Witham academies are committed to nurturing a supportive community which encourages a sense of social responsibility and personal development for all.

My responsibility is to ensure that we fulfil our aims and build on our achievements to enable current and future students to be well prepared for the challenges of life in the 21st century.

We would love for you to visit our Academy to see for yourself the great learning culture and ethos we have built here.
