Bromley Beacon Academy (BBA) is a member of London South East Academies Trust, a MAT consisting of 9 schools which are a mix of special, alternative and main stream provisions. BBA converted to academy status in February 2016 and is designated as a Social Emotional Mental Health (SEMH) school, located on three sites in the London Borough of Bromley, namely, Midfield (BTAM -KS1), Orpington (BBAO - KS2&3) and Bromley (BBAB - KS4&5)
Since opening its doors in 2016, Bromley Beacon Academy, has been committed in its vision to provide an outstanding education to all of its pupils and young people from all backgrounds. In so doing, our pupils will acquire the values, skills, knowledge and understanding to prepare them for life beyond the classroom and subsequently succeed.
We aim to create an atmosphere of mutual respect and resilience that supports our pupils to grow into purposeful young adults so they are able to contribute to society in a positive way by offering the following:
Specialist staff who are highly committed and have extremely high expectations of every pupil to ensure that our young people achieve their potential
The opportunity for pupils to experience a wide variety of curriculum subjects and enrichment programmes
A strong and effective partnership with parents to provide the necessary support for every pupil as we believe the education of our young people is a shared responsibility
At the Orpington campus (BBAO) we cater specifically for 7-13-year olds (Key Stages 2 & 3) with a hub at Bromley Trust Academy, Midfield for our Key Stage 1 pupils. The focus is on developing core skills of literacy and numeracy, whilst offering a broad range of other curriculum areas to provide real interest for our pupils. This is reflective in our intent for teaching and learning at all three sites and demonstrated through our core values as follows;
- BTAM - DECIDE (discovery, endeavour, community, independence, decisions, everyday)
- BBAO - LIFE (learning, independence, friendship, emotions)
- BBAB – RIHTT (relationship, integrity, honesty, trust, teamwork)
Hence, we prepare all our pupils to DECIDE and get LIFE RIHTT
We are on an exciting learning journey and believe that with the support of all stakeholders, we are able to achieve our absolute best for all our pupils and School. This was validated by OFSTED when they wrote
“The achievement of pupils has improved year on year since the appointment of the executive headteacher and new staff.
Pupils make strong progress across the curriculum, including in English and mathematics”.
(OFSTED, Jan 2019)
After 7 years at the school, I am extremely proud to have been appointed as the Headteacher across all phases. My ambition is to drive the accomplishments of the Academy further, enabling our young learners to develop and achieve the essential skills needed to be happy, confident and successful in order to flourish in adult life as citizens of this country.

As the Deputy Chief Executive Officer of London South-East Academies Trust, I am very proud of our pupils and young people who attend them; who we teach, guide and support so that they develop the knowledge, skills, emotional and social maturity to make thoughtful decisions and become purposeful young adults.
We are able to deliver this through a broad and balanced curriculum delivered by dedicated specialist teachers and support staff who provide an educational experience that enriches the lives of our young people.
By focusing on academic, social and emotional well being, we improve our pupils' life chances and provide the necessary guidance and support to allow them to follow appropriate pathways into further education and/or employment so they become good, moral citizens.
