At Stisted Primary Academy, we are proud to be a friendly caring school with hardworking and committed staff who want the very best for every child.


Our website aims to give you a flavour of our school, as well as providing regular updated information for parents, pupils and parents considering applying for a place.


We have 106 children currently on our roll, aged 4-11, from the local village, Braintree and surrounding areas.


Our school was originally founded in 1836 in the building next to the village church now occupied by Fairways pre-school to provide education within a Christian context for the children of the village and surrounding farm cottages.


The school is now located in The Street and the oldest part of our building dates back from 1872 and has been extended a number of times, most recently in 2010.


Today, we serve the local community and beyond for parents who wish to educate their children in a small popular thriving village school.


We welcome children from outside the ‘catchment area’ and from all backgrounds and faiths because we value richness and diversity.


We aim to offer all our children an ideal learning environment and an excellent level of teaching from a dedicated and skilled team of staff where enjoyment, creativity and personal development is valued as much as excellence and academic achievement.


‘This is an extremely successful school characterised by a positive atmosphere of calm enthusiasm and exceptionally good relationships among all members of the school community’.
