Cornwallis Academy (formerly The Cornwallis School) is a Mixed-sex secondary school and sixth form located in Linton (near Maidstone) in the English county of Kent.[1]

The school converted to academy status on 3 September 2007 and was renamed Cornwallis Academy. The school is now sponsored by The Future Schools Trust, but it was previously a community school administered by Kent County Council. However Cornwallis Academy continues to coordinate with Kent County Council for admissions.

The school relocated to a new building in September 2011, and has specialisms in language and science.[2] Cornwallis operates the New Line Learning concept of education, and offers GCSEs and BTECs as programmes of study for pupils, while students in the sixth form have the option to study from a range of A Levels and further BTECs. Some sixth form courses are offered in conjunction with New Line Learning Academy.[3]
