Welcome to Braunton Academy
Braunton village is surrounded by beautiful countryside and some of the country’s most stunning beaches and, as a respected and trusted centre of the local community, 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, inquiring, 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.
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.
A good education matters for everyone, with a broad range of provision extending well beyond the classroom.
Our young people flourish. A rigorous, academic programme, through which a committed and well qualified staff provides students with knowledge and skills, fully equips them to keep learning throughout life. By helping and co-operating with one another we come to appreciate differences and how by living and learning together we can help to make this a better world for everyone.
On this website you will discover just some of the reasons why we remain so popular and why more and more students are taking up the opportunities that Braunton Academy provides at both Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4
"A warm welcome to our place of learning."
