At Mersea Island School we are building a community, at the heart of island life, which is founded on mutual respect, tolerance, resilience and honesty. All members of the school are expected to take responsibility to ensure everyone feels safe and valued. As a community we work to equip everyone for the demands and opportunities of education, work and life. We teach through an engaging, constantly evolving and creative curriculum to ensure learning is purposeful and enjoyable.

Visitors are most welcome by appointment.  If you have any queries or are seeking support the school is always happy to help. Inquiries can be made via telephone or email.  We hope you find this website useful and informative.

Crabtacular project 2018 - the crabs are migrating!

We hope you all thoroughly enjoyed seeing the crabs on display down at the Hard.  They attracted a considerable amount of attention and, most importantly, further raised awareness about important environmental issues. A huge thank you to Mrs Veronique Ekstein and Mrs Vinny Stapley for making this possible.

If you have any blue or green plastic which will help the crabs feel at home in a watery scene, please send it in to school.  Mrs Stapley (artist in residence), will soon be sending dates out for any pupils who wish to work on relocating the crabs back on school site.


We are pleased to announce we won an Environmental Education prize, this year, for the previous 'Clean Tide Project'.  Well done everybody!
Keep up the excellent work on reducing plastic waste.

Our school community

It has been a very busy couple of weeks, the Halloween disco was a roaring success and the annual fireworks spectacular was brilliant.  Thank you to all those who supported these events and especially to the fabulous FOMISA team who have worked incredibly hard.  We are very fortunate to have such a dedicated team of people.
Over the past week, across the school, pupils have been engrossed and truly inspired with their learning about Remembrance.  Staff have been 'touched' by the caring and thought provoking images and words which have been forthcoming from the pupils, from Early Years to Year Six.  Thank you to Mr Thomas for all his hard work, we continue to be amazed at his breadth of knowledge and we are very grateful he has such an enthusiasm for sharing it.

'Touching' images from Year Six - Class Y


Our new Art club has proved to be a big success and we will be continuing after Christmas but with a new group of children. If you wish your child to attend this club please book a place online through your child’s account.
