Burrsville Infant Academy

Create a Joy in Learning For Every Child


Burrsville Infant School was established in 1967. The school converted to an academy with the REAch2 Essex Trust in December 2013. Burrsville Academy is situated on the Birds Estate in Great Clacton and welcomes children from around the coastal village of Great Clacton.

We operate a two form entry which means each September we welcome 60 children into our Early Years classes, Maple and Rowan. In 2016, the local Authority asked our school to extend our EYFS by another 30 places and we admitted 90 children into our EYFS.

Each July we send our year 2 children to Great Clacton Junior School. The Junior School is on our site but is managed independently. Miss Siggery joined our team as our deputy in September 2013 and became Head of School in 2014. In September 2018, Miss Siggery became Headteacher at Burrsville.

The school is very proud of the facilities and success enjoyed over the past few years.

If, as a parent of a pupil attending this school, you require a paper copy of the information on this website, we are happy to provide this free of charge.

If your child is due to start school in September 2020,

we are holding 3 Open Day sessions.  These are :-

Friday 8th November at 10.00 am, Wednesday 13th November at 10.00 am and 6.30 pm

Please call our office to book your preferred time.  

We look forward to welcoming you.
