What the school says...

Chelsea Academy is a mixed Church of England Academy near Chelsea Harbour, opened in 2009 in an award-winning new building. Sponsored by the London Diocesan Board for Schools and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, our vision is for a school that serves its local community and has a distinctive Christian ethos. Our SIAMS inspection in 2017 once again judged us to be an outstanding church school.

We have places for 180 students per year group and up to 250 students in the sixth form. 18 places in Year 7 are awarded on the basis of music aptitude. We received almost 900 applications for our Year 7 places commencing in September 2017, and we maintain waiting lists for places in all years 7-11.

Chelsea Academy combines traditional values and the highest standards with an innovative approach to learning and teaching. Students, teachers and associate staff work together to build a community based on mutual respect where students can flourish and develop the personal qualities they need for future success. We want to help develop young people who can make a valuable contribution to society.

In 2012 Ofsted reported that Chelsea Academy is an outstanding Academy. In 2016 we were awarded the World Class School Quality Mark. In 2017 we were in the top 14% of schools in the country for progress and attainment and were awarded three national awards from the SSAT to recognise this. We also hold the prestigious NACE Challenge award for high quality provision for more able students
