Thorpe Hall is a mid-sized co-educational day school accommodating children aged two to 16 on a thoughtfully arranged site in the Thorpe Bay area of Southend-on-Sea, easily accessible by car and public transportation services. The school has a vibrant and modern feel with a welcoming atmosphere, and is the only school within Essex to achieve Beach School status, with the locally accessible coastline providing a unique learning resource.
The school is strictly non-selective, meaning they cater for children of all abilities but, through its ‘think outside of the box’ approach to teaching led by dynamic head Andrew Hampton, coupled with an average class size of just 16 in the upper school, Thorpe Hall is able to showcase excellent results with 84% of students gaining 5 or more A* to C grades, including English and maths - well above the national average.
Alleyn Court School, established in 1904, is a co-educational preparatory school for children aged 2 to 11, situated across two sites in the greater Southend area.
The main site is a spacious and well-equipped secure 10-acre campus with a wide range of excellent facilities, including a new sports pavilion. Alleyn Court is surrounded by beautiful countryside with plenty of green space; of particular note is the centrally located natural pond creating a charming small-scale nature reserve used for regular outdoor learning.
The school is non-selective, offering an all-round education yet, due to the the positive attitude to learning, pupils boast excellent results with a large percentage going on to local grammar schools or securing scholarships at independent senior schools in the wider Essex area.
