Your future at your f ingertips


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. In 2017, 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!

As part of the Senior Leadership team here for the past ten years and having led Teaching, Learning, Curriculum and Staff Performance, I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved for our children. Students, staff and parents have worked together to secure our highest ever examination results and our best ever attendance. Our traditional values, where every student is expected to Learn, Engage and Respect and this strong sense of community, 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 helps bring subjects to life and support learning in an exciting way.

The student leadership at The Academy is unique 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 and after-school activities, such as Rock Challenge and Warhammer - 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.

Victoria Stevens
