The Eastbourne Academy were the first ever school in to take part in the Digital Genius Programme. The students learn Apple technology skills which are delivered by Apple Experts. They complete a range of exciting bite-sized workshops, earning them a much coveted Digital Genius badge. This is where students become heroes.
The students have since moved on to a STEM project that has involved them helping to build and race a Formula 24 Electric car around Goodwood Motor Circuit.
Dyslexia Friendly Quality Mark
The Eastbourne Academy are extremely proud to have achieved the Dyslexia Friendly Quality Mark. Being a dyslexia friendly school means we are a fully inclusive school and we see every student as an individual and recognise their strengths and weaknesses. We then work hard to support them in fulfilling their potential. "There is nothing so unfair as the equal treatment of unequal people." Thomas Jefferson
SSAT Educational Outcomes Award
The Eastbourne Academy has received national recognition for the value it adds to students’ achievements at GCSE.
SSAT, the Schools, Students and Teachers Network, recently undertook its annual in-depth analysis of official Department for Education data on all state-funded schools in England and identified The Eastbourne Academy’s success.
The school has qualified for an SSAT Educational Outcomes Award by being in the top 20% of schools nationally for progress made by pupils between their key stage 2 results at primary school and their GCSE results at age 16.
Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said:
‘The Eastbourne Academy should be congratulated for their exceptional achievement. They have proved themselves to be leading the field in improving GCSE outcomes for their students. There is so much good practice that this school could share, and I hope they will join us at the celebration evening for the chance to network and share strategies with award-winning schools.
‘These results are a testament to the commitment and hard work of the students, teachers and leadership team at The Eastbourne Academy, and show what can be achieved when skilled teachers have high expectations and ambition for every young person. I am proud that this school is a member of the SSAT network.
The Healthy Schools Programme provides a whole school approach which contributes towards raising achievement and provides opportunities to enhance the health and wellbeing of students, staff and the wider community. Achieving National Healthy Schools status provides rigorous evidence for Ofsted to see how we are meeting the five national outcomes for children and young people highlighted in Every Child Matters.
The programme builds upon what we are already doing and complements our other initiatives to promote PSHE, physical activity, healthy eating and emotional health and well- being.
