St Paul's Academy (formerly St Paul's School) is a coeducational Roman Catholic secondary school with academy status, located in east London, England.[2]


The school converted to academy status in 2005, sponsored by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Southwark. The school relocated to new buildings in 2010. Previously the school was under the control of Greenwich London Borough Council, and St Paul's continues to coordinate with Greenwich London Borough Council for admissions. 33% of school places are reserved for pupils from the local community, while remaining places are allocated to Roman Catholic pupils.[3]


The new campus is at the corner of Finchale Road and Church Manor Way, in the Abbey Wood area of the Royal Borough of Greenwich.


St Paul's Academy offers GCSEs and BTECs as programmes of study for pupils. The school has specialisms in Sport and Business & Enterprise, and has additional resources for the specialisms.[4]

Extracurricular activities[edit]

The school runs Gaelic football teams in partnership with Dulwich Harps GFC.

Awards and recognition[edit]

In February 2013 St Paul's was rated as "Good" by Ofsted.[1]
