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.


I am very pleased to have recently been appointed as Headteacher and very proud of all our amazing children and the strength of our staff team and Governing Board. We have so many strengths on which we can continue to build. I very much look forward to continuing to work with you, our parents, and the local community on our journey to excellence. I am always keen to hear your thoughts and ideas so please do come and chat to me on the playground, before or after school. Alternatively you can always call the school or send an email. I am always happy to listen. 
Mrs T Wright

Well done Years 4 & 5

Well done to all the children and staff in Years 4 and 5 for their super performances this week. It is has been lovely to see so many children with smiles on their faces, singing and dancing their hearts out.  Thank you to all parents and helpers for their donations of resources and time, without your kindness, the shows would not be possible, your support is very much appreciated.  


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.
