"School is a place to find yourself - to learn at the very limits of your potential and in doing so, discover who you really are."
Ashley Harrold


Our school motto is Involvement, Achievement, and Care. In all aspects we aim to excel. At Blatchington Mill School & Sixth Form, we believe, above all else, that education is a transformative force for good. Learning changes what we are and what we can become. It changes how we view others, and it changes how we interact with the world. It reveals our potential, and helps us discover our passions.
