Bexleyheath Academy is part of Academies Enterprise Trust, one of five schools in the London Region serving over 5000 pupils. It is proud to be a non-selective school in the grammar heartland of Kent and will stop at nothing to ensure our students achieve the very best of outcomes.

Our core mission has always been to close the educational gap between young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and their peers. Our ambition is one where every child in an academy, no matter their background, has equal access to high quality education, giving them the same opportunities and potential to succeed.

When inspectors visited Bexleyheath Academy in July 2021, they said that the way in which pupils work in school has been “transformed”, and that “there is a positive atmosphere in classes and around the school”. Inspectors also said that the school “has completely changed” and have confirmed in their report that Bexleyheath Academy is officially a good school.


This has been achieved through high expectations, a high-quality curriculum, brilliant teaching with each teacher wanting to get better every day and, most importantly, an embedded culture that drives every decision in the school. This culture is embedded at the Academy through the core values of, ‘Be Unusually Brave, Push The Limits, Discover What’s Possible and Be Be Hearted' leading to high aspiration, high motivation and outstanding outcomes.

We are currently accepting applications for a Learning Support Assistant. We are looking for enthusiastic candidates who care deeply about making a difference to the lives of our students. 

If you are looking to join a group of motivated, inspirational people committed to delivering an excellent education that launches children into remarkable lives then this is the academy for you.

Should you wish to visit us in person then our doors are open to you at any time on any day. Please contact the Principal rluthfa@bexleyheathacademy.org

With immediate train access to Central London and easy access to the Kent countryside, Bexleyheath has the best of both worlds. Despite having a Kent postcode, Bexleyheath is classified as Greater London due to its strategic location between Welling, Sidcup, and Bexley village.
