The Folkestone Academy aims to make all reasonable adjustments to the teaching and learning environment to ensure all students are able to reach their full potential.  Students at Folkestone Academy will have access to a broad and balanced curriculum, differentiated to meet the needs of all its learners.  Should a student require specific help we have a number of interventions that can provide targeted support.  We are an inclusive Academy and work with students and parents to help all to succeed.
