The Eastbourne Academy



We hope the information on this website helps you and your child make an informed decision about this important step in their education, either when moving from primary to secondary school or if changing schools during the course of the school year.

We positively encourage individual tours of the Academy.  We are happy to arrange an appointment at any time during the school day.  You may come with or without your child.  Please contact Mrs Harvey-Williams to book a tour, either by email: or on her direct line (01323)514891

We look forward to welcoming you to the Academy soon.

The Academy's Admissions policy can be found here.


Applying for a secondary school place

All applications for school places and offers of school places must be made via your child's home authority. So, if you live in East Sussex, you must apply through East Sussex County Council's Admissions department even if the schools you prefer are in another county.

Similarly, if you live outside of East Sussex but want your child to attend an East Sussex school, you must apply through the local authority where you live.  Whether you are applying for a place at the start of the school year or changing schools during the course of the year, the application form (below) must be completed.
