Bexhill Academy is part of Wise Academies. In addition to a Local Governing Body, a Regional Board and Board of Directors oversees the work of the Academy, and takes a close interest in its performance and provision.  Further details can be found here .

We are always keen to hear from parents/carers who would be interested in becoming a member of the Governing Body; please get in touch via the 'Contact Us' page if you're interested.

Admissions Arrangements

Bexhill Academy is a non-selective school for the local community. As such, the admissions policy reflects the locally co-ordinated admissions scheme. After admitting students with a statement of SEN, followed by ‘Looked After’ children, the admissions policy for the Academy prioritises brothers and sisters of children at the school and those living closest to the Academy. Our admissions policy is available below.

Our admissions number (PAN) is 60; this means this year we will admit upto 60 pupils into our Reception classes. Our admission number has been 60 for three years, hence we have a capacity of 60 pupils per year group in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. From Year 3 upwards our capacity is 60 pupils per year group.

Applying for a place at Bexhill is easy. Like most Sunderland schools, it is handled by the Admissions team at the Local Authority. All the details you need are here

PE and Sport Premium

All pupils in Year 4 access swimming at Bexhill all year. We record how many children can swim confidently and proficiently over a distance of 25 metres using a range of strokes. Additional targeted swimming is given to those children that need it in the summer term as an attempt to ensure 100% of pupils can swim before they enter year 5.
In 2022/2023 67% of our pupils left Bexhill being able to swim 25 metres.

The Government, via the Department for Education and Ofsted, publishes a range of information online. These are linked below.
