Thank you for your interest and considering Paignton Academy as your child’s secondary school.
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. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we have been unable to hold any Open Events this autumn.
At Paignton Academy, we feel strongly the most important aspect about choosing a secondary school is meeting the students and the wider teaching staff. During these unprecedented times, this is something we would not have been able to facilitate; any Open Event we would have organised would have involved small groups of 5, our students would not have been present and only our senior staff would have been in attendance. At the core of our decision making is the safety and wellbeing of our students, staff and the wider community.
We hope that by Summer 2021, the situation will have changed and we will once again be able to offer tours of the Academy and hold Open Events for prospective parents. Dates for those events will be posted on this page. In the meantime, please do take a look around our website.
In the Moving Into Year 7 section, under Parents’ Information, you will find some videos we produced for our current Year 7s back in the summer – click here
