Welcome to Blatchington Mill School and Sixth Form College

Our school motto is Involvement, Achievement, and Care. In all aspects we aim to excel. At Blatchington Mill School & Sixth Form, we believe, above all else, that education is a transformative force for good. Learning changes what we are and what we can become. It changes how we view others, and it changes how we interact with the world. It reveals our potential, and helps us discover our passions.

Blatchington Mill School’s community is incredibly special. We are a truly inclusive school and our students, staff and families are fully representative of the city in which we live and work. This diversity makes us appreciate difference and celebrate individual strengths. In order to learn well, we must all feel safe and secure. As such, we have unapologetically high standards for behaviour and conduct, and no tolerance for bullying or discrimination. As such, we are graded by Ofsted as ‘Outstanding’ for behaviour and safety. We expect a lot of our students, and they respond to the challenge with enthusiasm.

We are celebrating another year of outstanding GCSE and P16 results, with our students adapting incredibly well to the challenges of the new GCSE's in particular. We achieve incredibly strong academic results by ensuring every lesson, every day, is the best it can be. We are nationally recognised for our training and teacher development, and we invest in ensuring we have the very best staff.

We have an open evening in October each year (see Term & Key Dates) and also welcome prospective students and parents to arrange a visit throughout the school year. For those unable to make our open evening, we will also host some open mornings in October, details are published closer to the dates in our Events Section.

School is a place to find yourself – to learn at the very limits of your potential, and in doing so discover who you really are. This is a high-achieving school where students are cared for and nurtured in order that they can thrive. If you share our vision and would like to be a part of our on-going success then please visit us at open evening, open morning, or arrange a tour at any time of the year.
