We are Paxman Academy
Paxman Academy is a co-educational, fully comprehensive 11-16 academy. Of the 180 students that were admitted to the Academy last year, the majority came from Shrub End and surrounding areas, with the
remainder from other parts of Colchester. In its first year of opening the Academy was a popular choice and was over-subscribed.
The Academy has a STEM focus and works with other organisations to enhance the quality of provision.
We also share our excellent facilities across Sigma schools in Colchester to enhance provision in a number of subject areas.
Paxman Academy prides itself on the quality of its staff. The combination of experience, expertise, enthusiasm and commitment ensures that students, parents and carers receive the best possible service.
