Brighton and Hove County Council co-sponsors the Academy and sits alongside the Aldridge Foundation on the Governing body. PACA plays a full part in the local family of schools and BHCC take the lead in developing the community services (adult education, library and sports centre) hosted at the school.
PACA has developed a close working relationship with the University to develop the curriculum at the Academy and ensure a wide range of educational opportunities for its students. The University supports the Academy’s specialisms and provides opportunities to enrich and enhance learning. In particular, the Academy works with the University to build students’ aspirations, encouraging more to consider higher education as an option after leaving school.
PACA also works in close partnership with the Innovations Unit at the University of Sussex to develop entrepreneurship amongst our students and the wider community.
