Our academy

In November 2021, Merritts Brook E-ACT Academy moved into a brand new, state of the art, learning complex to ensure we provide the very best outcomes for all our children. The students will be able to utilise all of the new facilities which will ultimately benefit their overall educational experience.

Quite aside from the opportunity to work with pupils whose energy, creativity and enthusiasm never fail to inspire, our academy is:

• Ofsted good

• Committed to teacher development through E-ACT’s professional learning programme in partnership with leading training providers such as Ambition School Leadership

• Leading the way in youth mental health through our very own Mental Health First Aid programme – we aim to train every teacher as a mental health first aider.

• A leader in the education sector for outstanding employee benefits including a generous maternity policy and opportunities for flexible working.

E-ACT’s educational network is considerable – with such scope comes the requirement for robust structure and process.

We are an E-ACT academy and proud to be part of a community that includes over 18,000 pupils and over 2,400 teaching and non-teaching professionals across the country.
