We are very proud of our school, and want to show you how much our community means to us.
We come in all different shapes and sizes, we have lots of different interests and very different backgrounds, but we all belong at PCS.
First and foremost we believe that there is nothing more important than learning.
Learning happens everywhere: in the corridor, practising our monologues for Drama; at Bentley Woods where we have Forest School; on the coast road with cycling club; in Churchill Square with Young Enterprise; at the Methodist church where our Hospitality students serve Christmas dinner; in the Hall, where our Year 11s have lead lessons. Learning is fun. Like all good learners we fail a lot, but we all know that failure is an important step towards success.
Secondly, we believe that everyone in our school has a voice. We are a Unicef Rights Respecting School. This means that we learn about our rights and responsibilities as citizens and put them into practice in our community. Students are leaders at PCS, beginning right at the start of the day where our community leaders are on duty in the office to help students, staff and visitors.
Finally, we believe that school is a place where you should make the most of the opportunities that you have. Secondary school is the time in your life when you get to explore different activities. There are so many things to try: computer programming, dancing, school plays, debating, foreign trips, sports leadership...the list goes on. Never again will you have the time or the opportunity to try so much.
