Da Vinci Community is home to Maths, Physical Education, ICT, Performance Studies (Dance, Drama and Music) and Performing Arts and is named after Leonardo Da Vinci, best known for his artistic genius.

Leonardo Da Vinci has been described as "the most diversely talented man that ever lived " and as a "True Renaissance Man" (someone that has wide interests and is an expert in several areas). In Da Vinci we believe that every child has a talent and it is our role to find that talent and to nurture it. We also want our learners to leave The Eastbourne Academy equipped with a wide range of skills that will prepare them for their lifelong learning journey.

Our philosophy can be summed up by Leonardo himself who stated "I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.
