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 and we feel strongly the most important aspect about choosing a secondary school is meeting the students and the wider teaching staff.
We plan to host two Open Events in September and a further two in October. These will be Open Mornings at Waterleat Road on Tuesday 28th September and at Borough Road on Tuesday 5th October, and Open Evenings at Borough Road on Thursday 30th September and at Waterleat Road on Thursday 7th October.
We will publish a booking form for any prospective parents on 10th September. Parents will have to book a place to attend, to allow us to safely manage numbers. We anticipate a very high demand and early booking will be essential to avoid disappointment.
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 [email protected]
