Cornelius Vermuyden School and Arts College is a Foundation, comprehensive school for boys and girls ages 11–16 with a specialism in the arts. Located in Canvey Island, Essex, the school is named after the famous Dutch land engineer Sir Cornelius Vermuyden (1595-1683) who was famous for reclaiming large areas of fenland in the UK, and for supervising the construction of the sea walls around Canvey in 1623.
The school holds the Sportsmark award and the Specialist Schools Trust have recognised the school in their 'Most Improved Schools Club'. Pupils from the school were involved in the creation of a large mosaic on Canvey seafront in 2007. The project was funded by Essex County Council and the BP petrol company, and the results earned the praise of the chairman of Castle Point Council's environment committee.
The Karslake Centre was opened on 15 September 2005 by Paul Karslake.[clarification needed]
