Principal’s WELCOME

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: A fantastic place for our children to live and learn.

Supporting both students and their parent/carers, our central aim is to build strong partnerships that recognise and respect the value of learning, investing in and reigniting that true love of learning for all that it can offer our community and provide for our children as masters of their own destiny.


Braunton Academy is an increasingly popular and oversubscribed community school where learning and well-being are at the forefront of our ethos for all to ‘Aspire & Achieve’. We work hard in maintaining a careful balance between their personal well-being and the challenge of their academic studies, providing carefully orchestrated practices to develop personality and character, whilst recognising that nothing is achieved without one giving of his/her best.

Mrs F Bowler

We recognise today's 'currency' of CHARACTER and QUALIFICATIONS and their importance: so, we teach through the Trivium and focus on developing our children to become self-regulating and independent learners – teaching them to “think instead of just remember”.


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 them to be of value to their family, local community and society as a whole.

Mrs F Bowler

"A warm welcome to our place of learning."
