School profile

Beacon Academy

Beacon Academy is the founding school of MARK Education Trust, a small multi-academy trust responsible for two secondary schools in East Sussex. Our schools are “ambitious for excellence” and aim to benefit from working in partnership; forming a community of best practice and sharing expertise to improve outcomes for children and young people.

As a trust, we seek to know and serve our communities well; developing successful schools with their own unique identities that are the school of choice for their local community and the employer of choice for the best professionals.

Via collaboration and sustaining a robust and rigorous culture of constant improvement, our vision is to provide the best possible education for our students, preparing them for life in the 21st century, so they can stand equally alongside their peers, locally, nationally and globally.

We are dedicated to developing world-class teaching and learning through research-based CPD and school-to-school support. We are passionate about training the next generation of teachers and are delighted to be working with UCL Institute of Education in partnership with Sussex Coast Schools Alliance to provide professional development for Early Career Teachers.
