We are an outstanding Academy sponsored by both the Church of England and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. We opened in September 2009 and are now full with over 800 students wanting a place in year 7 each year. We are proud of our high academic standards but also that, through our guiding Christian ethos, we develop the whole child into someone who will be successful in the real world. We are a happy and inclusive community and visitors always comment on the purposeful and welcoming atmosphere of the Academy. Through our science specialism we ensure that every student has a thorough understanding of science and offer a unique range of scientific opportunities and visitors to students from year 7 through to year 13.

Chelsea Academy is an inspirational community of learning and achievement with high expectations and high aspirations, underpinned by a culture of “no excuses”. Guided by Christian values, the Academy seeks to bring out the best in everyone, as we strive for excellence in all that we do. No student will be left behind as they are provided with the skills required for life and work in the 21st century. When students complete their Academy lives, they will have the qualifications, leadership qualities and sense of destiny to make a positive contribution to society.
