A school transformed

Welcome from the Principal

Graeme Napier


Welcome to the website for Bexleyheath Academy. We are part of the thriving Academies Enterprise Trust, and serve more than 1300 students in the London Borough of Bexley between the ages of 11 and 18. Bexleyheath Academy is a school where every student can be inspired to choose a Remarkable Life.

Bexleyheath Academy is a great school, where students encounter a superb learning experience every day. Described by Ofsted as a "transformed school", the Academy really is a place where every young person can Find their Remarkable.

Everything we do is built around our values to Be Big-Hearted, Discover What's Possible, Push the Limits, and Discover What's Possible.

The core purpose of our Academy is to ensure that every student enjoys an education that will help prepare them for a Remarkable Life in our modern world; to encourage a thirst for knowledge that will continue beyond their time with us at Bexleyheath Academy.

Our curriculum has been designed specifically for our students by the talented team of subject-experts at Bexleyheath Academy. Within our curriculum:

  • Students experience a curriculum with social equality and opportunity at its heart; ensuring that students develop an astute awareness of themselves, their peers and their place in the world.

  • Students are met with intensity and rigour in every aspect of their school life and, with no time to waste in the lives of our students, there will be no wasted minutes in the classroom. Teachers will craft intellectually demanding sequences of lessons that meet students with high expectations; sequencing learning for long-term retention and depth of understanding. As a cornerstone of our academy, students will develop a deep, increasingly complex, working knowledge in their chosen areas of study.

  • Students will grow a toolkit necessary to solve in-depth tasks in every subject and, in developing their complexity of thought, they will understand the ability to make links as the foundation of intellect. Students will acknowledge a focus on the progress they are making in terms of knowing more, remembering more and being able to do more.

Bexleyheath Academy provides an environment in which talents and abilities can thrive. We are a truly inclusive Academy offering all our students, whatever their background or ability, a great experience in the classroom, fantastic cultural opportunities and caring pastoral support.

We are proud of our high expectations in terms of behaviour, effort and a readiness to take an active role in Academy life. The sense of community and pride in our Academy is clear as you walk around. We pursue excellence because we are proud of what we stand for. No matter what a person’s role in the Academy, all staff work tirelessly to ensure every one of our students pursues excellence in all that they do.
