Visit Paignton Academy


Thank you for your interest and considering Paignton Academy as your child’s secondary school.

If you wish to book onto one of our Open Days, please complete the Open Event Booking Form – July 2023

As the only secondary school in Paignton and the largest school in Torbay, we pride ourselves on providing an excellent, well-rounded education; we have inspiring, enthusiastic and dedicated staff and we are extremely proud of our fantastic students.

We know how important choosing the right secondary school is for every parent and child and we strongly feel that the most important aspect about choosing a secondary school is meeting the students and the wider teaching staff.

We are pleased to be able to host two Open Events in July and a further two in October 2023 (October dates to be confirmed).  We will be holding an Open Morning at Borough Road on Tuesday 11th July 2023 and an Open Evening at Waterleat Road on Thursday 13th July 2023.

We have a very successful and unique structure with our students being based across two smaller sites.  We always welcome half of our incoming Year 7 students to the Borough Road site and half to the Waterleat Road site.  

    The students remain on these sites for the duration of their five years.   We are one school, spread across two sites.        Students will take advantage of facilities on both sites after school, particularly coming together for sports team                training, drama and music.

    We look forward to meeting you in due course. If you would like any further information, please contact us by email        at
