How the Academy gained its name
The name “Painsley” was chosen because it had a common link with all the parishes which cover our school community. From Painsley Hall, Draycott, one of the Draycott family houses, came a “Painsley and Draycott Mission”, which served the neighbouring areas and from which grew those parishes which are now connected with this academy.
