Welcome to Paignton Community & Sports College

Paignton Community & Sports College has been a designated specialist SPORTS COLLEGE since September 2002. Through achieving Specialist School Status we have received extra funding which is helping to improve provision for sport both in the College and in the local community.

The College has over 1926 pupils on roll, including 285 Sixth Form students, the vast majority coming from the immediate Paignton area. The College welcomed its first Comprehensive intake into Year 7 in 1992 and first Sixth Form students in September 1995.


At Paignton Community & Sports College we aim to:

  • enable all members of the College to achieve their full potential by encouraging the highest possible standard of endeavour
  • develop personal qualities and social skills in order that members of the College may respect both the needs of the individual and those of the whole community
  • work with local primary schools, secondary schools and clubs within the community
  • ensure that sport in Torbay matches what is offered anywhere in the country


Paignton Community and Sports College has been a designated specialist SPORTS COLLEGE since September 2002. Through achieving Specialist School Status the College has recieved extra funding and will do so each year, which will help improve provision for sport both in the school and in the local community. The plan is to become the hub of sport within the Bay. We will work with our local primary schools, secondary schools and clubs within the community to ensure that the opportunities for sport in the Bay match those opportunities offered anywhere else in the country.


The College offers a comprehensive programme of study and is fully implementing the National Curriculum. To emphasise the need for continuity from 5 to 18 years a pupil's progression through the years of compulsory education is divided into five Key Stages.


School admission policies are the responsibility of the Local Education Authority (Oldway). Each Torbay School serves a particular area but parents may apply for a place in any school. The Governors of Paignton Community and Sports College have amended, with immediate effect, their Admissions Policy, having considered the 1996 Education Act, Section 433, to state that the College will only admit casual entries at the start of a new term, with the exception of Year 7 in the Autumn Term.


On the completion of five years of Secondary Education at Paignton Community and Sports College, pupils can qualify for transfer to our Sixth Form Centre. In January there is a Sixth Form Open Evening for parents and pupils of the College and other local schools. Full details of the options available will be made known to parents when their children are in Year 11 at this College.
