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
