Situated on the edge of Cranbrook, The High Weald Academy is an exciting and innovative 11-18 school which welcomes students of all abilities and aims to provide them with the skills and qualifications needed to turn them into confident and successful citizens.

In a rapidly changing world the Academy is committed to the relentless pursuit of excellence and the maintenance of the highest possible standards in both academic achievement and personal behaviour.  As a specialist sports college the Academy recognises the power of sport to transform learning and raise self esteem.  The sports leadership programme allows all students to develop their self-confidence by working with partner primary schools while the Academy’s highly successful farm is run by members of the student body.

The strength of The High Weald Academy is based around its commitment to working in partnership with others including local primary and secondary schools.  The High Weald Academy also benefits from the sponsorship of The Brook Learning Trust which offers nationally recognised leadership and training opportunities.  Above all the Academy recognises that  no student can be successful without support and encouragement from both school and home and the Academy’s open door policy allows any concerns to be addressed quickly and effectively.  We hope that you will want to join us on our journey and look forward to welcoming you to The High Weald Academy in the future.
