Braunton Academy Homepage
Welcome to Braunton Academy
Wow! 2016 has been a fantastic year for Braunton Academy; in June, we received an extremely positive OFSTED report and now, in maintaining this momentum, our Year 11 students have achieved a superb set of fully deserved GCSE results.
It's wonderful to see and witness our whole community, especially our students, recognising and understanding the importance of all their hard work, effort, determination and commitment, and how it can lead to great achievements.
In congratulating our students on all that they have achieved, we must also recognise and congratulate and thank all of our parents/carers, governors, teachers and support staff for their hard work and commitment in ensuring every opportunity has been available for the students to achieve their fullest potential.
Congratulations and well done to all !
In a year where the national picture of GCSE results once again looks turbulent, we are especially pleased to see another strong performance from our Year 11 students, with nearly 50% of entries being awarded at grades A*- B, and 75% of our students achieving A* - C grades in both English and Maths. Please refer to the General Information Page and Exam Information to see a detailed report of our 2016 GCSE results.

Mr Cammack's message of the week:
As we approach the half term our students are reflecting on their progress (both academic and social) in their Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education lessons. This has been an especially fantastic term for our Year 7 and Year 11 students who have both had to settle into a new way of life and learning: well done to all of our students for what they have achieved so far in this new academic year.
Please feel most welcome to attend our "Year 10/11 Parents/Carers Revision Evening" on 1st November 2016, start 6.30pm:
An evening of 10-15 minute presentations focusing on the importance of a parent partnership in creating a revision programme and student motivation; the workings of the brain and how best to use it in enhancing learning; practical revision skills/techniques and the importance of planning in a host of subject areas.
