Burrsville Infant Academy

Create a Joy in Learning For Every Child


Burrsville Infant School was established in 1967. The school converted to an academy with the REAch2 Academy Trust in December 2013. Burrsville Infant Academy is situated on the Birds Estate in Great Clacton and welcomes children from around the coastal village of Great Clacton.

We operate a two form entry which means each September we welcome 6i0 children into our Early Years classes, Maple and Rowan. 

Each July we send our year 2 children to Great Clacton Junior School. The Junior School is on our site but is managed independently. Miss Siggery joined our team as our deputy in September 2013 and became Head of School in 2014. In September 2018, Miss Siggery became Headteacher at Burrsville.

The school is very proud of the facilities and success enjoyed over the past few years.

If, as a parent of a pupil attending this school, you require a paper copy of the information on this website, we are happy to provide this free of charge.

Are you interested in training to be a teacher?

We are a proud partner school in the REAch Teach primary teacher training partnership, which offers a school-based training route in our school and other local schools. Our Primary PGCE is a unique programme that puts you in control of your development from the moment you apply to the moment you qualify as a teacher, through a carefully crafted, blended model of online and in-person training sessions and a strong focus on wellbeing.


If you’re starting to consider your options for teacher training in September 2024, we would be delighted to share more information about our newly designed programme for 2024 entry. Please get in touch with the Initial Teacher Training team at [email protected] with any questions or visit our website – https://www.reachteach.org/

We want to share with you a video that has been produced as part of the promotion of 11 before 11.
