It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Folkestone Academy. For all children, and you as parents, moving from primary to secondary is a big step, with a range of emotions including excitement and, no doubt, some nerves. Rest assured our transition process ensures that your child will swiftly adapt to and embrace daily life in the Academy.
Mr Steve Shaw, Head of School
