Paulet High School is a mixed secondary school and sixth form located in the Stapenhill area of Burton on Trent, Staffordshire, England.[1]

Stapenhill Post 16 Centre

The idea of a purpose-built sixth form centre shared between the neighbouring Paulet High School and Blessed Robert Sutton Catholic Sports College was first discussed in 2001, with a £1-million proposal accepted by planners and school governors in October 2002.[2] Building work on the centre commenced in November 2002.[3] The project was carried out by building contractors Interclass.[4] The sixth form centre opened in September 2003.[5]

The centre was officially opened in March 2004 by Charles Clarke as Secretary of State for Education and Skills.[6]

In January 2010, the centre received a visit from Ed Balls during his service as Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families.[7]

However, after the shared sixth form provision received a critical report from Ofsted, Blessed Robert Sutton Catholic Sports College decided to split the partnership and offer its own independent sixth form provision.[8] From 2015 Paulet High School has offered its own sixth form provision and is the sole occupant of the sixth form building.
