Dear parents and carers of allocated students

Welcome to Ebbsfleet Academy

I am delighted that your child has been given a place at our school; I do understand however, that it was not one of your choices. 

I would very much like to give you an opportunity to visit the academy and meet with myself, when you will be able to see us in action. To that end, we are inviting you to visit us, when you will be given a tour of the school.  We will have staff and current students on hand to answer your questions.   Please arrive, along with your child, at 9am on Wednesday 8th March.  We will be finished by 10.30am.

Ebbsfleet Academy is a dynamic and successful 11-18 Academy serving the local community. We have students of all abilities and from a wide variety of backgrounds, all of whom contribute to the richness of our school population.

At Ebbsfleet Academy our aim is to get the best out of every student; excellence in teaching and learning is therefore at the heart of our work. Our vision is based on three core values: ‘Be Ready, Work Hard, Be Nice’. In working towards instilling these values in our students, we strive to provide a safe, healthy and stimulating environment for all.

Our curriculum is based around the needs of our students and consists of a rich blend of academic and vocational qualifications, all supported by fantastic learning resources including outstanding sports facilities, as well as modern, generously equipped classrooms, workshops and laboratories. All areas are served by excellent ICT facilities including Chromebooks for all students. Working together, in partnership with all stakeholders but especially parents and carers, we are creating a dynamic and innovative learning institution.

Our ambition is to ensure that all of our students achieve their potential, develop as courteous, confident and capable young people and leave with an education that has fully equipped them to go on to University or the career of their choice.

Ebbsfleet Academy is proud to be a community school. As such we can cater specifically for the learning styles and social needs of our learners. Our curriculum allows students to develop socially, behaviourally and academically at their own pace and in their own unique ways. This reflects positively in our results.  Exam results are only one measure of success.  We foster students’ wider interests and skills through a varied programme of extra-curricular activities and student leadership opportunities, all of which are essential to nurturing potential outside the classroom.

We have high expectations of everyone in our school. Our provision includes extension for the most able, as well as targeted support and intervention, to ensure all students achieve to the best of their ability and that they leave Ebbsfleet Academy equipped with the skills needed to excel in today’s world. 

I do hope that you will be able to come and see the academy in action on 8th March 2023 and I look forward to meeting you then.  I will be welcoming students and their families at 9.00am with tours taking place after.  Please visit the following Google page to register your place –  If you are unable to make this date and time please email us at to arrange a 1:1 tour.

If you have any questions prior to this date please also feel free to contact me directly, again at

Yours faithfully,
Gurjit Kaur Shergill | Principal
