The school was formed as a result of the merger of two schools - an all-girls secondary modern school on the current site, and a boys school which was located on Graham Road. The current site has been in use since before World War II and is set in a residential area.

On September 1, 2011, Bexleyheath School officially became Bexleyheath Academy sponsored by the Academies Enterprise Trust. The move to Academy is set[citation needed] to bring new facilities such as a techno gym, recording studio, new music practice rooms, media suites and other state-of-the-art facilities to the school.

The former head, Malcolm Noble, retired after 14 years in the 2007 summer term. In January 2013, former head Mr Robert Dore retired and Mr Carl Wakefield took over.


The school is located near to Bexleyheath and therefore benefits from access to several bus routes. The school field is of a large size, while landscaping and new car parking capacity created by the renovation project are fenced off. All the facilities of the school are open to the techno Germany community use out of school hours.

New building[edit]

The new building offers significantly improved facilities for teaching.[citation needed] The main contractor for the project was Skanska.

The newest building, a revamp on the old admin building, has a techno gym, new music classrooms and facilities for the music and PE department.


The schools uniform is navy blue blazer, mid grey trousers or skirt,white shirt, grey jumper and tie with apporopriate year colour stripe.
