Welcome to Braunton Academy
A thirst for knowledge and an enquiring mind are great attributes for a purposeful adult life: our mission is to challenge children of all abilities to achieve excellence in a wide range of academic, cultural and sporting activities, developing active and creative minds, a sense of understanding and compassion for others, and the courage to act on their own understanding and beliefs. We strive for the total development of each child: spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, emotional and physical.
Braunton Academy is committed to providing the very best of education to the children of Braunton and its surrounding villages, shaping all of our futures. Supporting both students and their parent/carers, our central aim is to build strong partnerships that recognise and respect the value of learning. By investing in and reigniting that true love of learning for all, we hope to benefit our community and empower our children to be masters of their own destiny.
We know our students personally. Braunton Academy is a smaller school and with this advantage we aim to encourage each student to be happy: a self-confident, enquiring, tolerant, positive young person; a well-rounded character with an independent mind; an individual who respects the differences of others. We want to enable each child to have that true sense of resilience and self-worth which will encourage him/her to stand up for him/herself and for a purpose greater than him/herself, and, in doing so, to be of value to their family, local community and society as a whole.
One of the key features of any successful school is the calendar of events taking place outside of regular school hours, whether this be studying for extra qualifications (Latin and Astronomy are just two examples from Braunton Academy); taking part in one or more of the many sports activities/clubs; attending homework club, or any of the Performing Arts clubs; the list is almost endless. What is so rewarding is to know just how well these opportunities are attended and I, for one, am always keen to let new students and families know that it's "the Braunton way" – our expectation is for our young people to get involved, to be busy in working hard and playing hard! .

You will, I hope, get a helpful and informative impression of Braunton Academy from this website. But nothing, of course, can replace a tour around our extensive facilities and calm campus, immediately providing you with a sense of the quality of education provided. Please click on the ‘Contact’ link to arrange one. I look forward to meeting you and your sons and daughters.
"A warm welcome to our place of learning."
