Welcome to Honywood School

We are a high achieving, comprehensive school serving the village of Coggeshall and nearby communities in North Essex; on May 1st 2011 our school became an Academy.

Young people at our school can expect the most challenging learning experiences. We expect our learners to become independent, mature and empowered, able to make excellent decisions about the lives they lead whilst at our school, as well as learning how to be happy and successful in the lives they will lead on leaving us. These expectations, when added to the strong partnership into which we enter with Honywood School families, ensure our young people consistently out perform their peers, making us one of the most effective schools in the country.

For all main round admissions (Year 6 to 7), applications must be made directly to Essex County Council as these are dealt with centrally.

For further information please see the Essex County Council website .  Once a place has been confirmed, families will be contacted by the school.   For more information click here.
