South Devon High School, based at South Devon College, Paignton Campus, is an exciting opportunity for pupils studying at Key Stage 4. Pupils entering Year 10 have the opportunity to join us to study their GCSEs in core subject areas, including English, Maths and Science, with a choice of specialist technical qualifications.
Class sizes are typically 15 or less, and if pupils need additional support to achieve good grades, we will provide support with a personalised intervention programme. All pupils will have a Personal Tutor who will work with them to help them to achieve. Subject tutors and a personal tutor will help each pupil set their own targets and work at a level which will stretch and challenge them to reach their full potential.
Our vision is to ensure that every pupil reaches their full potential. We are committed to providing the best teaching, learning and support for all pupils. All of our teaching staff have been formally graded as either 'Good' or 'Outstanding' in their most recent observation.
South Devon High School pupils can now apply for a FREE bus pass if they live more than 2 miles from the School and have a household income of under £21,000. If the household income is above £21,000, the bus pass will cost £6 per week. This is a fantastic reduced rate compared to buying Stagecoach ticket prices directly. You can apply for your pass here.
