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 sports hall we have now been successful in our bid to Priority Schools that will see the redevelopment and rebuilding of the whole site over the next 18 months. These are exciting times!

  • Good to see the improvements the school has made over the last 18 months or so.
  • The new building looks like it will be a huge asset to the school.  All the students we met during the tour were very polite and well spoken and eager to talk about the school positively.
