Our School

Silverdale is a thriving primary academy which is part of the University of Brighton Academies Trust, for children aged between 4+ and 11 years. The academy is situated in the northern part of St Leonards-on-Sea.

At Silverdale Primary Academy, we are very proud of our academy site which has extensive and beautiful grounds and very large playing fields. We are very fortunate to have a rainforest themed library, a forest schools outdoor learning area and a large bank of ICT resources.

Our academy is based on the core University of Brighton Academies Trust values that Silverdale holds at the heart of all we do. We work together to create a place where we can all meet our potential, deliver excellence, achieve our ambition and enjoy being together.
