Announcement from Heidi Brown, Executive Principal


About Us Sections

Having spent almost 40 years working in schools, 17 years of this in the role of Principal, it is with some sadness that I have decided it is time for me to retire at the end of this academic year.

I would like to thank all those staff, students and their parents for making my professional life so very rewarding. I have always considered it a privilege to be a teacher and have thoroughly enjoyed my time in the classroom. If over the last 40 years I have managed to inspire any of my students to aim high and make the most of the opportunities open to them I would consider this a measure of some success. As a school leader I hope I have helped to transform the quality of education in the schools where I have worked.

The last 6 years at Bexhill Academy have been both challenging and very rewarding. The Academy is now oversubscribed and bears no resemblance to the school I took on in 2013. Bexhill Academy is poised to take its next step towards becoming a great school and I wish everyone every success in the future.

Heidi Brown, Executive Principal
