Welcome to Paget High School
Commitment and Vision:
Our commitment and vision is for: Students to experience an inclusive and caring school, striving in partnership with the community, to become resilient learners with high aspirations and levels of achievement. M.Howell - Head Teacher
Paget High School is proud of being a school where all students, from a huge variety of backgrounds, make very good progress during their time with us.
All students are very well supported by highly committed teaching and support staff.
At Paget High School we pride ourselves on getting to know, and caring for, all of our students. This strong pastoral ethos is vital to the success of the school.
Our Sixth Form is extremely popular and most Year 11 students apply for the limited spaces available. We very much see Paget High School as a seven year journey for our students, providing good preparation for both university and wider society.
This is a school committed to the welfare and success of your child.
At Paget High School we aim to:
• Provide a structured environment within which individuals learn to manage their own learning.
• Provide high standards of personal care and support for all, with a particular focus on setting high expectations for behaviour, effort and progress.
• Provide for the improvement and growth of the whole student; preparing them for lifelong learning and recognising the individual aptitudes and talents in all.
• Be an integral part of the community and to establish close, constructive relationships with parents/carers and the wider community.
• Help students to understand and respect both themselves and others, regardless of ethnicity, religion, gender or sexuality.
• Help students understand the society and world in which they live and develop respect for democracy and the rule of law.
Our Sixth Form is an integral part of the school and a natural extension to study from Year 11. Our Post 16 Education programme will enable young people to prepare for their future, whether that be to enter the ‘world of work’ or to continue in Higher Education.
All students who choose to apply to university will be fully supported through the UCAS process. We offer a weekly Job Club to enhance employability prospects of those who don’t want to continue their education after Sixth Form, including an in-depth look at apprenticeship opportunities.
Our Sixth Form is not just about academic qualifications. We offer students a wide range of enrichment opportunities. These include accredited courses such as First Aid and Sports Leadership. All students participate in a Personal Development Programme and have the chance to experience work placements and work with those in the lower years. Students are encouraged to become increasingly independent and to develop the personal skills they will need for further study, employment and life.
For students that meet the eligibility criteria, we operate the government’s 16-19 bursary scheme and applications are considered throughout a student’s time in Sixth Form. Students can make use of this to purchase a vast range of educational resources including text books, visits and laptops.
We have great Sixth Form facilities including a common room and our own private, fully equipped study room. We also have a designated Sixth Form Learning Mentor to support learning where it is required. We have extremely high expectations of all students in our Sixth Form and reward those that meet these.
Sixth Form Prefect Team
The Paget Senior Prefect Team are a body of Year 13 students dedicated to supporting fellow students and teachers alike. Heavily involved in open days and award ceremonies, supporting staff on break and lunch duties, the prefects continually play a large role around the School as respected members of our community. Should any students seek advice or support, they can ask any member of the prefect team, all of whom can be found wearing red lanyards. Even with the workload of A-levels, they are always happy to help.
