St Paul’s CE Academy

Joined August 2016

St Paul’s has a fine history dating back to 1871 and a reputation for excellence in the performing arts.

Our purpose-built Learning Support Hub, The Harbour, provides opportunity and pastoral support for all children beyond the classroom. This also includes a well-resourced nurture facility which provides support for children with specific needs.  We have well-resourced ICT, a Performing Arts Centre, BMX track, outside gym and large grounds for sport and play.

Our Christian ethos supports and develops all pupils to become well-rounded citizens of the future. We welcome children from all faiths and value good manners, kindness and consideration for others.

Although we are a large school, we treat each child as an individual and develop their potential so that all can achieve and experience success.

Parents and children are fully involved in the life of the school. Parents are informed about their child’s learning, their progress and next steps on a regular basis. We have an active PTA group – The Friends of St Paul’s – who provide additional opportunities for children and a flourishing second hand uniform shop, as well as funding for the extras. Parents are invited to join working parties on a range of issues.

St Paul’s CE Academy Performance - Joined August 2016

Reading Writing and Maths at expected standard. National Average = 65%


St Paul’s has very strong attainment and progress in line with or above national averages.

These scores show how much progress pupils at this school made in reading, writing and maths between the end of key stage 1 and the end of key stage 2, compared to pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 1.

The headteacher has a well-defined vision, based on the school’s Christian values. This is driving improvement in all aspects of its work.
