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.
Open Evening 2016-2017
Braunton Academy is an increasingly popular choice for children and parents as they begin to choose their new Secondary School; currently we have a limit in each Year group of 150 students. The Governors welcome applications from parents/carers who fully subscribe to our ethos and are prepared to support us in our drive for ever improving standards.
Braunton Academy, as a non-selective and inclusive school, welcomes children regardless of their aptitude or ability. The Academy's admission procedure is in keeping with the Devon LA policy framework, whilst the Academy's Governing Body is responsible for the administration of the admission arrangements and remains responsible for any appeals.
If you feel that Braunton Academy is the best choice for you, then, please attend our Year 6 Interactive Academy Open Evening, starting in the Isaac Hall at 6pm on Wednesday 21st September 2016, which is our main event where parents/carers and students can visit all areas of the Academy and meet students and staff. Parents/carers can also book to see the Academy 'at work' on one of the five 'School at work' mornings that follow (9.10am or 11.30am) starting in the Isaac Hall from Monday 26th September 2016: appointments to visit these Academy days can be made by telephoning (01271) 812221.
