Folkestone Academy Students


We view all our students as rounded individuals who achieve not only in their studies but in every aspect of their life. To this end, we aim to provide you with opportunities to achieve excellent results, contribute in a significant way to the Academy through student leadership roles and to make a positive impact on the wider community during your time in the Sixth Form and again when you move on to employment or higher education.

While in the Sixth Form, we encourage our students to give some of their time and energy to the Academy and to the local community, volunteering for reading or mentoring, helping out with sports including football, basketball and rugby coaching, working with the local radio station or involving themselves in dance, drama, music, visual arts or media events for or with the younger students. In the past, Sixth Form students have regularly assisted at dance, drama and music events, helped out in local charity shops, schools and care homes and helped fundraise through a number of different sponsored and non-sponsored activities.

Our philosophy is that all of our students should be supported on a personal and individual basis in terms of both their academic progress and their general welfare and well-being. It is our aim to ensure that you not only achieve your educational goals but also that you become thoughtful and active citizens leaving us with confidence, commitment and optimism for your future.
