The High Weald Academy

A Brook Learning Trust Academy


We are a small, rural, co-educational, 11-18 all ability secondary school. We pride ourselves on a family atmosphere where learning is personalised. The high quality of teaching and pastoral care helps to ensure students make excellent progress, live up to our high expectations and achieve their full potential.

We have an outstanding, award winning farm, supported by the local farming community. As part of the learning experience at The High Weald Academy there is an extensive range of exciting extra-curricular activities.

Following the investment of £1.2m and opening of our new sports hall, we were successful in our bid to Priority Schools that will see the redevelopment and rebuilding of the whole site over the upcoming months (see the latest progress here). These are exciting times!

Our admission arrangements can be found below. Please contact the academy here or via telephone on 01580 712754 should you have any questions or require any further information.

If you are considering your options for a secondary school place in September 2019 or 2020, we would like to invite you and your child to one of our upcoming open events. These events offer the opportunity to meet our staff, current students and take a tour of the school to see us at work. Click here for dates and to book your place
