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.

Blatchington Mill School’s community is incredibly special. We are a truly inclusive school and our students, staff and families are fully representative of the city in which we live and work. This diversity makes us appreciate difference and celebrate individual strengths.

In order to learn well, we must all feel safe and secure. As such, we have un-apologetically high standards for behaviour and conduct, and no tolerance for bullying or discrimination. As such, we are graded by Ofsted as ‘Outstanding’ for behaviour and safety. We expect a lot of our students, and they respond to the challenge with enthusiasm

school history

Blatchington Mill School and Sixth Form College was formed in 1979 from the amalgamation of Hove Grammar School for Boys, Knoll Boys School, and Nevill County Secondary School. See more about former students on our Alumni Page.

 

The School takes its name from West Blatchington Windmill which is situated just outside the school gates. The earliest pictorial record of the windmill is a pen and ink sketch by John Constable in 1825. The windmill is a 'smock' windmill.

 

The name was given to this design of wooden tower mills that resembled the smock frocks worn by the millers of the period. It has six sides (they normally have eight) and is clad in cedar boarding. The mill ceased working around 1900 but is now restored and a Grade II listed building.
