Ethos and Welcome
Pakefield opened as a new school in September 2011 for students in years 7 and 8. The School’s PAN (Pupil Admission Number (PAN) is 180 students per year with an overall capacity for 900 students.
Our mission is to ensure that every student has interesting and varied learning experiences and makes the best possible progress in developing their skills, knowledge and understanding. We seek to instil in our students a love of life-long learning, a strong sense of community service and a good understanding of society that will help them prepare for higher education and the world of work. We expect our students to develop as well-rounded, mature and confident young adults ready to take up their place in society.
Our aim is to be a centre of excellence for teaching and learning in which all students achieve the highest standards in their education, their personal development, and their behaviour and conduct. This is achieved through:
- a broad and rich curriculum that provides opportunity, challenge and support including a focus on developing strong skills in literacy and numeracy
- the extensive provision of extra-curricular and extended activities which develop individual interests and talents through academic, cultural, aesthetic, sporting, spiritual and ethical experiences
- high-quality pastoral support, care and guidance so that students are supported and guided so that they are able to reach their full potential and are prepared for their next stage in life as mature, responsible and thoughtful young adults
