Find Your Talent at Folkestone Academy

Unfortunately due to current social distancing rules we are not able to host one of our engaging and informative open evenings or morning tours. Therefore we have created this website to include all the information you would receive if you were to visit the Academy in person.

Find Your Talent at Folkestone Academy

Welcome from our Head of School

Hear from our Year 7 pupils

Welcome to Folkestone Academy!

Learning is at the heart of everything we do at Folkestone Academy. We foster an environment where pupils value their education, enjoy their learning and feel inspired to develop their true passions. We offer traditional academic subjects alongside creative arts, sports and a vibrant extra-curricular offering ranging from drama to visual arts, football to dance, and computing to music technology. We want our pupils to find their talent and be the best they can be.

Folkestone Academy is a school evolving to support pupils beyond the classroom. During lockdown we introduced our digital platform to ensure all pupils had access to home learning and did not miss a day of school. We are working with our partner - Google, to support pupils succeeding in the digital age. As we move into this new era we will provide all new Year 7 pupils with a Chromebook to guarantee access to online learning.

We provide extensive support for our pupils, especially those new to the school. We have a wide range of specialist staff to support pupils who need additional help as well as dedicated non-teaching staff to help manage the day to day worries and concerns of parents and children. Each year we welcome primary pupils from across the district, including pupils from our three Trust primary schools. Each child is made to feel welcome, starting with a comprehensive transition programme, and supported to be the best possible version of themselves.

Please take some time to navigate yourself around this information website and watch our video about Academy life.
