Colchester Academy


At Colchester Academy we always strive to ensure that parents and carers are fully engaged in their child’s learning.


‘Classcharts’ is an online application that allows students and their parents to see what homework has been set and when it is due to be handed in, either online or through mobile devices such as a tablet or smartphones.  Teachers will set homework on Classcharts and students will be encouraged to record this in their homework diaries.

All parents and students are given a unique Classcharts PIN, if you need support accessing or using Classcharts please contact your child's form tutor or call the Academy.

Classcharts can be accessed via the link: 

Knowledge Organisers

At the start of each term, all students will be issued with a Knowledge Organiser containing the key terms and definitions for every subject. 
These documents are also available to download from the links below.  Homework will be set by teachers directly from these at KS3 and will focus on the learning and retrieval of key facts and vocabulary.  At KS4, homework will be a combination of the retrieval of key facts and examination skills practice.
