One of the key features of our education at Torquay Academy is that we prepare our young people for the world of work.

We hope that nobody who employs one of our graduates would say that they do not have the key attributes that set them up for success: self-management, problem solving and attitude to work.

This can be particularly challenging given that we are preparing our students for the jobs that don’t yet exist, using technologies that haven’t yet been invented, in order to solve problems that we aren’t yet aware of.

Forging effective links with businesses has opened doors to many of our students.
