Information about the School
Heybridge Primary School currently has 373 pupils ranging from 4 – 11 years across fourteen classes.
We have a bright modern building, which is well equipped and is set within unusually generous grounds with playing fields and gardens. We are acknowledged as a friendly school within our local community and benefit from easy access to local amenities.
In December 2012 we converted to Academy status and became part of the highly prestigious Kemnal Academies Trust (TKAT). The School shares good links with other primary and secondary schools in the Maldon area, so is able to provide wider learning experiences and networking opportunities with our neighbours and also schools within the TKAT family.
