Welcome to PACA

PACA is a co-educational school for 11 to 18 year olds based in the heart of the Mile Oak Community in Portslade, Brighton. There has been significant development of the Academy site over recent years with £12.7million being invested in an impressive new state of the art building and fantastic new facilities such as a Dance studio, Mac suite, community library, superb sixth form and a STEM Centre.

The Aldridge foundation believe that it is incredibly important for all pupils within its schools to achieve much more than just good GCSE results, we believe that these transferable skills are needed for a successful future, whatever career path you choose to pursue.

Those skills are; Being Creative, Team Work, Having Passion, Determination, Problem Solving and Risk Taking.

PACA6 is still accepting students for A levels, BTECS and Level 2. If your plans have changed for whatever reason, why not come to PACA6 for an informal chat about what we could offer you.
