    Welcome toThe High Weald Academy

    The High Weald Academy is a small school serving a widespread rural area.  There is a calm and orderly environment and a commitment to excellence in all aspects of academy life.  The welcoming and family ethos is reflected in our PRIDE values and in our cohort structure which promotes a strong sense of community and belonging and supports students to develop and flourish both academically and as young people.  It is a school completely connected to the local community.  High Weald Academy has high expectations of all students and aims to ensure that students achieve the highest possible academic results as well as supporting them to develop as good citizens able to take their place in the world.  We have an active and supportive parent body who are advocates of the work we do and promote the academy positively in the local area. 

    The academy currently has just under 400 students. The School Farm is outstanding and wins a range of accolades and prizes as a result of the work we do with the community and local primary schools.  It also gives opportunities to learn in a different context within and beyond the curriculum. 

    The High Weald Academy is on a trajectory of improvement.  Our key priority and focus is to remove the barriers to learning in order to secure good and better progress and outcomes for all students no matter what their starting points or challenges.  Working with the Brook Learning Trust, a small multi-academy trust, this is an academy that is committed to ensuring that children achieve well and are given every opportunity to develop a diverse range of skills and abilities that will serve them well in adult life.   The Trust provides opportunities for collaboration between both staff and students across the three schools it works with. At a time of flux in education we have a strong belief that schools can no longer exist in isolation and that partnerships of this kind are a way of providing stability, support and innovation.

    We welcome the opportunity to show you round and to talk to you in person either today or on a future visit. Choosing a secondary school is a huge decision and it is important that you are able to make the right choice for your child. Do tell us about your son or daughter's interests, abilities and personality and we will show you how The High Weald Academy can provide an environment in which they will thrive.
