Joining us in Year 7

It gives me great delight to welcome you to our Admissions page. If you are considering applying for a Year 7 place for your child, you should find everything you need to know on this website. You can see how our day works as well as the way in which our pastoral system and the curriculum is structured. And you can keep up to date with all our news via the news tab or checking the Twitter feed!

As the parent of three secondary-aged children I know that choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. I am incredibly proud of this fabulous academy where children feel safe and supported and they can flourish throughout their time at Chelsea Academy. Our Christian ethos frames all that we do and instils lifelong values into our students.

My talented and committed teachers want each and every child to develop a love of learning so that they leave us with a strong set of GCSE or A Level results – ready for the next stage of their education.

Our ethos and unique commitment to our Extended Curriculum enables students to develop as well rounded individuals. They have access to incredible opportunities, trips and experiences throughout their time here.

Do come and see us. Please book into one of our Open Mornings and come to our Open Evening on 29th September. We love welcoming visitors to the Academy!

"I have found (as has my child) that the teachers are kind, and completely in touch with what teenagers need. They realise that the way to get the best out of children is to believe in them- believe they can succeed and that they want to do things right. The school and the teachers should be so proud of themselves."
"Chelsea has proven itself to be a highly competent Sixth Form - the experience has given our son much hope and practical assistance to build his future. Thank you for your excellent work, it is a great blessing to our family."
"The support and help we receive for both our children is superb. The enthusiasm and dedication of the teachers is showing on every parents evening and children’s feedback."
