Seaford Head School (formerly Seaford Head Community College) (SHCC), in Seaford, East Sussex, England is a co-educational secondary school with academy status for students aged 11 to 16 years.[1]

Seaford Head formerly had a sixth form, from which the last students left in 2009. The closure was due to increasing competition from the larger Sussex Downs College conglomerate. A new sixth form centre will open in September 2014. The school was in Ofsted special measures from 2004 to 2006.[2] An Ofsted inspection was carried out in October 2010 and the school was judged "Good with many outstanding features" and will be reassessed in the next 5 years (2015 at the latest).

The school is a Specialist Science & Sports College, holding the Sport England Award Sportsmark. It also holds the British Council International School Award and the ArtsMark award from the English Art Council. It is a part of Healthy Schools East Sussex, which promotes healthy eating and lifestyles, and is a member of the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust.[citation needed]
