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 – October 2023

We are  holding an Open Evening at our Borough Road site on Thursday 5th October 2023 for 540 visitors. There will be three identical time slots of approximately 1.5 hours. 4:30pm, 5:30pm & 6.30 pm (full) with up to 180 visitors welcome at each session.

We will be holding an Open Morning at our Waterleat Road site on Tuesday 3rd October 2023 from 9:15am – 10:45am for 150 visitors. (Now fully booked)

We advise early booking as we are always fully booked a few weeks before the event and we would ask all visitors to book in advance. Whilst we have two sites, the principals welcome will be identical on each site, the staff will be similar, each site runs exactly the same, so there is no need to come to both events.

We will also have further Open Events next summer in late June.

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 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
