Welcome to Patchway Community College website. I hope that it will give you an insight into our vibrant academy where dedicated staff inspire our students to enjoy learning and to achieve more than they ever think they could. We are committed to the development of the whole child at Patchway. Supporting young people to achieve excellent outcomes at GCSE and post 16 levels is the most powerful thing we can do for those students and for the community we serve. Our results this year show impressive improvement, with 58.5% of students achieving A*-C grades in both English and maths GCSEs. In the sixth form, 68% of A level grades were A*-C, and in BTEC 86% of grades were distinction. We value and reward effort, determination and aspiration and we are proud that our learners become strong and confident individuals who are able to make a positive contribution to their local and wider community.
The learning experience at Patchway Community College is not just about success in the classroom. Our four houses nurture each individual and support them to develop their abilities and talents and our vision statement embodies all that the house system represents. We believe that by challenging students, raising their aspirations, and insisting on good behaviour, learning is enhanced and outcomes are improved. We want our young people to become independent, active citizens who are well prepared for their future lives. The journey involves a three-way partnership between school, parent and child and their success depends on your support. We value highly the relationships we build with families and we will work closely with you as your child grows and develops at Patchway Community College.
I hope that our website encourages you to find out more about Patchway Community College and we look forward to meeting you.
