Hello, my name is Mr Ovey and I am proud to be Head of Year 8. I have been a PE teacher here at Braunton Academy for 8 years and previously held the role of Head of Woolacombe House. Local to Barnstaple, I enjoy watching and playing sports.
Year 8 is all about learning independence and responsibility. There are many activities and trips designed to help the students to have positive experiences as well as enhancing their social, emotional and academic studies at Braunton Academy. Students are able to join events to help them raise their standards and achievement and these include the Marjon Trip and the many gifted and talented workshops in Drama, Art and PE. Students are able to be Sports' Leaders and help with the Primary Festivals. The students are encouraged to be Eco Monitors and are positive role models for the younger students.
