History & Heritage

Welcome

We are Paxman Academy

We are immensely proud to have the opportunity to build a school with the highest expectations and aspirations from the beginning.  In September 2019, 180 Year 7 students will be admitted.  Year on year this will grow until the school will provide 900 places for local students by 2023.
