Prince Avenue Academy has been part of the South East Essex Academy Trust (SEEAT) since April 2014.

There are seven schools within the trust:

South East Essex Academy Trust is a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) with seven schools. We are a friendly, collaborative family of schools which is looking to grow to between 6,000-12,000 pupils with an emphasis on school improvement.

Please get in touch if you are interested in the benefits that working collaboratively can bring to us all. We would love to hear from you!

As a Trust we aim to develop a vibrant partnership of local primary and secondary schools, all united in one goal to provide the best possible learning experience and environment not only for our current children but also for the next generation of pupils.

We have a strong record of working collaboratively with schools across all phases and we have seen the benefits of this approach to all those involved. We believe that all the schools in the family have become significantly stronger since working together as part of SEEAT.

SEEAT was inaugurated on 1st April 2014. This was made up from Westcliff High School for Girls, Prince Avenue Academy, Nursery and Children’s Centre (sponsored by WHSG) and Rochford Primary School and Nursery. The Trust enlarged on 1st September 2014 with WHSG sponsoring the academisation of Holt Farm Junior School. In September 2021 The Deanes School, Hadleigh Junior School and The Westborough School joined.
