Welcome from the Principal

Emma Smith

I am delighted to welcome you to Leigh Academy Blackheath, a place where tradition meets innovation and potential is realised within a nurturing community.  Our purposeful and multi-disciplined learning environment creates a climate where students not only acquire knowledge but also master the essential problem solving and critical skills needed to succeed and lead in the 21st century.  Our community is collaborative and, together, we ensure our students develop into powerful citizens for a digital future.

We believe in building strong partnerships with parents and carers, working closely together to ensure all learners succeed. We pride ourselves on the positive working relationships we form at Leigh Academy Blackheath, not only between students and teachers but also between the academy and home.

Our values of Respect, Integrity, Ambition, Scholarship and Resilience permeate everything we do and our small school, human-scale education model, delivered through a college structure, ensures the educational experience for every student is personalised.
