Student Admissions

Joining Us

Thank you for your interest in joining The Eastbourne Academy.

We understand that choosing the right school for your child is an important and exciting step. At The Academy,  we would like to help you through that process by providing as much information as you require to make an informed choice. We positively encourage you to see the academy in action on one of our individual or group tours,  whether the transition is from primary to secondary or moving schools during the year (In year admission).

To arrange an appointment at any time during the school day, please contact us either by email: or 01323 514900 and ask for our Admissions Officer Miss T Knight.

Although The Eastbourne Academy manages its own admissions, you are required to apply for a place through the Local Authority.
