Links and Opportunities for Local Schools

As part of collaborative working with Torbay and Devon schools, Combe Pafford School offers local primary and secondary schools the opportunity to use our vocational facilities.  For Key Stage 4 pupils, we run vocational courses leading to a variety of qualifications eg City and Guilds Level 1 Certificate in Basic Construction Skills and ABC Level 1 Certificate in Motor Vehicle Studies.  For younger pupils we offer the opportunity to take part in some introductory sessions and taster experiences.

The subjects on offer include Motor Vehicle Maintenance, Construction, Electrical Installation, Animal Care, Hairdressing, Hospitality & Catering, Horticulture and Health & Social Care.  

At Combe Pafford we have purpose built facilities for many of these activities including:  

·         a fully equipped garage with ramps and a training room  

·         a construction centre with workshops for electrical installation, painting and decorating, plumbing and bricklaying

·         an animal care centre

·         a hospitality and catering building which will include a fully equipped commercial kitchen, cafe and training room

·         a horticultural base 

Most of our courses are run on site at Combe Pafford School.  Alternatively if you would like to see the animals which we have at Combe Pafford School, we can bring them to you courtesy of our ‘Really Wild Roadshow’!

Transport for courses can be arranged if required and course timetables are flexible.  If you would like further information or to discuss costs and the possibilities for your school, please contact us:
