PALATINE SPORTS COLLEGE - A LEARNING AND ACHIEVEMENT TRUST
Welcome to the Palatine Sports College web site. We hope you like it and find it easy to use - if you have any comments or suggestions for improvements please let us know.
Palatine is an 11-16 Secondary School with approximately 900 students on roll. It became a Sports College in 2004 and in 2007 English was identified as the second specialism. In 2010 Palatine gained Trust status, enabling the school to formalise partnerships with 7 organisations. The Trust arrangement has been hugely beneficial to the school and it has co-incided with rapid rates of improvement in academic attainment at the school. Indeed such was the impact that in 2010 the school was nominated by SSAT in the 'Most Improved School in the Country' category. Although academic attainment has improved, and projections for 2013 indicate that this will be significantly higher this year, our pastoral care and guidance of students has always been highlighted as a huge strength.
Palatine is at the forefront of many exciting initiatives and is gaining national recognition for the innovative approach taken. We are an inclusive and child-centred school, crucially we are passionate in our belief of developing 'rounded individuals' and 'good citizens' who are well-equipped for the needs of the 21st Century.
As a school we consider ourselves to be at the 'heart of the community'. This vision is supported by the Palatine Campus which now includes a Leisure Centre, Tennis Courts, Cycle Track, Municipal Library, Children’s Centre and The Oracle - a state of the art facilty for young people. All of these facilities are used by the school.
Things are changing rapidly at Palatine, our students only have one chance. We demand high standards from all students, but equally we will support them attain these aspirations.
