Mid-Essex primary alternative provision site to open in Witham

Following a recent application to the Regional Schools Commissioner, we are extremely pleased that Heybridge Co-operative Academy’s application to extend the school’s age range has been approved, meaning that the school will welcome its first group of Primary pupils at its newly acquired site in Witham in September 2020.


The introduction of a 20 place primary provision at Heybridge Co-operative Academy will double the available alternative provision places for primary aged pupils across North East and Mid Essex. This increases the overall capacity of the school from 115 pupil secondary places to 135 places overall.


Heybridge Co-operative Academy has acquired the former Chipping Hill primary school site in Witham for this new provision.
