Welcome to Honywood School

About 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, families will be contacted by Essex County Council with instructions on how to apply. For families whose child is currently outside of the State Education system, please contact Essex County Council to ensure that your child is registered. For more information click here.
