Starting PACA by Cameron in Year 7

Cameron“When I first started at PACA, I was extremely nervous, but having spent three weeks here, I have settled in very well.

On my first day, I was rushing to get in. The teachers were really helpful and I am really enjoying PACA.

The first three weeks have been amazing. I have done every lesson at least twice and all lessons are enjoyable.

My favourite subjects are STEM with Dr Oprandi and Maths with Mr Price. These are my favourite subjects because in STEM we are racing a car and maths, because it is just extremely enjoyable”.
