Welcome from the Executive Principal, Seamus Murphy
Folkestone Academy is committed to providing all of our students with the very best education from cradle to career, from our Kindergarten through to Post 16. The Academy is part of Turner Schools, a local Multi Academy Trust, whose aim is to create first class non-selective education . Turner Schools’ priority is to deliver academic excellence, pairing the highest quality teaching with the widest possible opportunities. We believe all children can succeed and thrive. Our leaders are proud of their roots in the local area – they care passionately about ensuring the young people of the town benefit from an excellent education, one that enables them to make the best possible choices for their future path, be it university, high quality apprenticeships or the world of work.
At Folkestone Academy we foster an environment where students value their education and 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 debating, from football to dance, board games to music technology. We want our students to find their talents and be the best they can be. We provide extensive support for our pupils, especially those new to the school. We have a wide range of specialist staff to support students 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, as well as from our Primary phase. Each child is made to feel welcome, starting with a comprehensive transition program, and supported to be the best possible version of themselves.
We look forward to meeting you and our future students.
