In 1975 three local schools, including Earls Colne Grammar School, Halstead Grammar School  and Halstead Secondary School, amalgamated into the Ramsey School, as part of the re-organisation of schooling along comprehensive lines. The school was named Dame Mary Ramsey, a 16th-century local educational philanthropist. The school was later renamed The Ramsey College.
The 2006 Ofsted report averaged the college at a satisfactory grade. However this was revoked by the Ofsted report in 2012, when the school was placed under special measures. The school converted to academy status in September 2013, and was renamed The Ramsey Academy.
In 2013, the school was once again graded as "good" in most areas and "outstanding" for leadership and management.
