Sponsorship for the Academy is provided through a partnership between our principal sponsors working in close partnership with the Department for Education (DFE) and Kent Local Education Authority.

Our sponsors are Crown Products and Holiday Extras, both of which are local companies with extensive links in the community. Their vision is for all children, whatever their ability and background, to have the opportunity to enhance their life chances through an excellent school education.

With the support of the sponsors, Academy students will build the personal development skills needed to succeed, and in turn contribute to the economic growth of their community. The sponsors place great importance on partnership working and collaboration with the local community. Both sponsors support the Canterbury 4 Business initiative and see the Academy being central to regeneration of the local area through the development of a strong local knowledge-based economy.
