Braunton Academy is particularly proud of its continuing success at GCSE.
GCSE 2021 series
The decision has been taken to cancel the formal examinations in the summer of 2021 due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on education. Ofqual, the examinations regulator, has published its guidance on teacher assessment which the Academy has now put into place. We are now waiting for detailed guidance from the examination boards which will clearly outline how the professional judgements of student performance are to be made.
Teachers will be asked to make a judgement about the standard students have achieved in relation to their knowledge, skills and understanding of their subjects. Teachers will draw upon a range of evidence which may include standardised papers from the examination boards, NEAs (coursework), mock exams, and any other substantial pieces of work produced during the course.
Details of the approach the Academy intends to take are outlined in the document below.

Braunton Academy GCSE Results 2020
Due to the extraordinary circumstances related to the Covd-19 pandemic, students entered for GCSEs in 2020 were assessed by their teachers in line with government and examination board guidelines.
Examination data was not published in the form of performance data for this academic year.
However, Braunton Academy is very happy to report that students at the Academy, once again, enjoyed real success in their examinations and we would like to congratulate them on their well-earned achievements.
We are all about celebrating the individual achievements of our students from whom we have witnessed some exceptional personal performances, recognising these GCSE results are the just reward for all of their efforts. Braunton students continue to perform at a consistently high level.
We would like to thank the students’ families for their help and support during this time, since the grades awarded are very much a result of the special partnership enjoyed by the students, their parents/carers and the Academy working closely together.
We are very proud of all our young people with whom we have had the privilege to work with over the last 5 years, and wish them every success in their next stage of their education and training and, of course, hope that they will remember their time at Braunton Academy with many fond memories.
