A learning community where everyone can flourish.
Hello, I would like to extend you a very warm welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit our website. My name is Victoria Stevens and I am privileged to be Principal here at The Eastbourne Academy.
We are an established school in East Sussex which continues to go from strength to strength. Our last Ofsted confirmed, for the third time in a row, that we are a Good school. They said “Pupils are immensely proud of their school and are keen to learn” and we agree!
Students, staff and parents work together to secure the very best academic and personal outcomes. Our curriculum is centred around Aspiration, Character and Employability. This coupled with our traditional behaviour values, where every student is expected to Learn, Engage and Respect ensures that a strong sense of community and collaboration is at the heart of this school.
We are fortunate to have excellent buildings with modern resources which gives everyone a warm, welcoming and friendly place to learn and one that challenges them to be their best. Equipping every student and teacher with an iPad or Chromebook helps bring subjects to life and support learning in an exciting way.
The student leadership at The Academy is distinctive and very strong, providing many opportunities for our students to become involved and have their voice heard. As well as our amazing range of trips, scholar programmes and after-school activities, there is something for everyone!
This could be your first step to becoming part of this vibrant, successful and inclusive learning community, where both students and staff thrive.
I invite you to come and see for yourselves what makes us so special.
