The John Wallis Church of England Academy is a coeducational all-through state school with academy status in Ashford, Kent. It was known as Christ Church Church of England High School. On 1 September 2010 it became an academy, sponsored by the Diocese of Canterbury, Benenden School and Canterbury Christ Church University. The school specialises in Maths and Computing and is named after Ashford-born mathematician John Wallis.

It will hold places for 950 students aged 11–16 and in 2011 will include a further 200 places for post-16 education. A move to a new site is planned for 2013.

The school officially became a 3-19 academy on 31 August 2012, educating pupils of primary and Secondary school ages, as well as a sixth form provision.


The high school attracted media attention after a pepper spray attack in February 2008.[1]
