About the School:

Seahaven Academy is a very proud community, with really big ambitions and incredibly high expectations for all our students.  We whole-heartedly believe in our United Learning motto: ‘the best in everyone’.   

Our recent inspection confirmed we are a ‘good’ school in all areas with a track record of strong outcomes for our students. We are unapologetically ambitious for every child, no matter what their background, prior attainment or needs. We provide all our young people with the challenge and support they need to achieve their goals to enable them to lead happy and fulfilling lives.  We strongly believe in ‘Education with Character’ and want our young people to look back on their time at Seahaven as an education which has inspired and rewarded them and prepared them for the ups and downs of life.

The strength of relationships between students and staff is second to none, and we know that we can make a real difference to our students’ lives.  Add to this a vibrant atmosphere, a stunning cliff-top location and excellent facilities and it is easy to see why we feel so passionately about our academy and the work we do at Seahaven.
