About Bexhill Academy

Bexhill Academy is a vibrant and thriving school at the heart of its community. Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make on their behalf. At Bexhill Academy we aim not only to match parents’ expectations of what an excellent school should offer their child, but to exceed them.

Within a welcoming and supportive environment, we provide a stimulating and engaging education designed to give every child the chance to achieve their potential. We see each child as an individual and seek to give them an education which best suits their abilities and interests. By the time they leave the academy, we want students to be confident, responsible and articulate individuals with the skills and knowledge they need to make a real success of their lives.

We focus on the whole child and so our broad and balanced curriculum is complimented by a wide ranging and exciting programme of extra-curricular activities. There is something for every child at Bexhill Academy – whatever their interests, whatever their abilities.

We track the progress of every individual student to ensure they achieve in line with and beyond expectation and therefore leave us with qualifications fit for higher education and/or the workplace. As an inclusive school we cater for a wide range of students with additional needs and have a highly professional and successful team of staff who will provide these students with the additional care and support they require. It is our belief that Every Child really does Matter and at the core of our understanding is that a happy child is an achieving child.

In addition we offer a scholarship programme for students who excel in academic subjects or who have demonstrated real talent in the areas of music, art, drama and sport.

There have been many changes at Bexhill Academy over the last three years which have seen the school transformed. Gone are the large learning PODs that the school has been notorious for in the past and in their place we have excellent, well designed individual classrooms. The facilities at Bexhill Academy are excellent and give rise to an attractive and bright learning environment that promotes student progress and a love for learning.  Bexhill Academy was judged to be a ‘good’ school by Ofsted in May 2017 and we aim to be an ‘Outstanding’ school.

To see for yourself what the Academy can offer, please come to one of our Open Days or make an arrangement to visit us at another time. You will be met with a genuinely warm welcome.
