Why Torquay – Principal’s Welcome

I have the great privilege of being the Principal of Torquay Academy. It is a happy and exciting school for boys and girls aged 11-18. My vision, for every member of the school community, is clear: “Everyone Succeeds”.

Torquay Academy educates young people who have high aspirations and the desire to achieve in a co-educational setting. We meet the needs of all of our students in a supportive environment by challenging and encouraging them to become the best they can be. This enables students to move onto their next steps in life as confident, enterprising and happy individuals.

Our close partnership with Torquay Boys’ Grammar School continues to flourish with staff working collaboratively and students moving between the schools in the 6th form.

The prospectus can only offer you a glimpse of this wonderful school. I invite you to visit us and discover the unique benefits of a Torquay Academy education. Details of our open days can be found here. You can also find my weekly blog where I write about some of the many activities and events that have taken place that week.

If you wish to make an appointment to meet with me please contact my PA; I am available on Thursday afternoons between 4.00pm and 5.30pm.
