PiXl Edge

Braunton academy are pleased to offer students the opportunity to gain the EDGE.  As part of the PIXL organisation we run and accredit the PIXL EDGE.

The attributes that the EDGE focus on are crucial in your child’s transition from a child to an adult.  If they can identify how they are developing these then they will be better placed to be successful in achieving them.

The scheme is intended, over time, to develop and accredit the life skills and attributes that employers are telling us they need – leadership, organisation, initiative, resilience and communication.  This will give students a qualification, which runs alongside their academic successes and recognises what they can do as well as what they know.

In order to gain the qualification at “Apprentice”, “Graduate” or “Masters” level, students need to complete a range of activities from an approved list.  The activities can be many and varied and can be undertaken in normal lessons, in extra-curricular clubs or outside of school.

Progress on the scheme will be managed by students themselves using a specially designed on-line application, with tutors and Heads of Years providing an oversight and awarding credits towards achieving the qualification.

In Summary;

  • An opportunity to develop important attributes for life:
