South Shore Academy (formerly Palatine Community Sports College) is a school in South Shore, Blackpool, Lancashire. A National Lottery Grant enabled the High School to be turned into a Community Sports College. A new leisure centre has been built on the grounds. The £6.5 million centre was opened on 13 February 2006, by Tessa Jowell. Palatine expanded the sports it provides for children in P.E. and started a new course, B-Tec first diploma in sport.

In December 2013 the former Palatine Community Sports College was converted into an academy by Bright Futures Education Trust (BFET)

The Ofsted inspection[edit]

The 2012 Ofsted inspection reported the school to be "...an improving and increasingly popular school where standards and achievements are rising". The Ofsted inspection was the first in six years.[1]
