A learning community where everyone can flourish.

My name is Victoria Stevens and I am privileged to be Headteacher here at The Eastbourne Academy.

We are an established school in East Sussex that continues to go from strength to strength. Our most recent 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!

I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved for our children. Students, staff and parents work together to secure the highest examination results possible and to ensure the best attendance.

Our curriculum is centred around Aspiration, Character and Employability. This coupled with our academy values of Teamwork, Effort and Ambition ensure 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 provide a warm, welcoming and friendly place to learn that challenges everyone to be their best. Every student and teacher is equipped with technology that helps bring subjects to life and supports learning in an exciting and innovative way.

The student leadership at The Academy is unique and very strong, providing many opportunities for our students to become involved and have their voices heard. Also, our amazing range of trips and after-school activities ensure there is something available 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.

Our Curriculum Intent 

The Eastbourne Academy provides a good quality of education.

Academic and personal excellence is at the heart of The Eastbourne Academy’s curriculum intent.  Endeavouring to provide the highest quality education for all, we strive to equip students with the knowledge they need to gain and maintain employment and independence.

We recognise that qualifications are the stepping stone to employability, but also that high aspiration and strength of character are the foundations for long term success. A wide range of student leadership, arts and sports programmes, trips and visits, and extra-curricular opportunities ensure that the curriculum extends beyond the classroom.

Students will leave The Eastbourne Academy with the essential knowledge and attributes they need to be fully rounded and educated citizens who will be prepared for whatever the future may bring.


We are dedicated to giving our student's a broad and balanced education in a supportive and stimulating environment where every child's potential can be realised.
