There’s a great atmosphere at Paston College both in the classroom and outside of lessons.
To help enhance your studies, we offer a variety of opportunities for you to meet new people and enhance your UCAS personal statement or CV by getting involved in something interesting and rewarding.
Depending on the subjects you study, there are opportunities to attend a variety of trips abroad or closer to home.
To date our students have visited the Tate Modern, Clothes Show Live, European Parliament, Supreme Court of Justice, Cambridge and Oxford universities, Madagascar, China, Norway, Iceland, South Africa, New York, Amsterdam and many more.
To help you discover what career path you want to follow after completing your studies, we offer a visiting speaker programme which allows you to attend sessions run by industry professionals throughout the year.
Whether you’re interested in architecture or accountancy, medicine, marketing, physiotherapy or photography, you will learn what the career is really like from the people actually doing them.
Clubs & Societies
Being at college is as much about your personal development as your academic studies. Qualifications are vital, but qualifications on their own are not enough.
To help you enhance your student experience, we have a variety of Clubs and Societies on offer depending on your interests. If you cannot find what you want, we will help you start your own.
