WELCOME TO OUR SCHOOL!!!
Thank you for your interest in Braunton School and Community College and I hope that you find the information in this website both interesting and informative. We are a high achieving 11-16 Specialist status Community School with 733 students currently on our roll. Our specialist status, which has recently been renewed, is in the field of Mathematics and Computing. The whole curriculum benefits from the additional resources and staffing that our specialism brings us.
We take great pride in our excellent record of academic success and the opportunities that we offer our students through our varied curriculum and our extensive range of extracurricular activities. We continue to perform well above the national average and have good added value over the past three years.
We strive to ensure that all students achieve their potential through a clear focus on learning and achievement in a supportive a caring learning environment. We are proud of the fact that we know every student as an individual and we strive to challenge, engage and stimulate all of our students regardless of ability so that they all can enjoy their learning and succeed in a very secure and friendly environment.
As a School we demand much of ourselves and have very high expectations of the students in our care. We have an excellent and highly qualified teaching team who enjoy the support of a highly effective team of teaching assistants, technical , site and administration staff. We especially value the supportive collaboration with our parents, ensuring that this partnership is strong and to the benefit of your son or daughter. Our Home-School Agreement defines our shared commitments to this important relationship to maximise the support for your child’s learning.
Our September Open Evening offers parents and students the opportunity to visit the School meet me, my staff and the students. If you would like to visit the School during the day, while the students are learning in their classes, we will be very pleased to arrange tours which can be scheduled on the first Wednesday of each month.
I aim to build on the School’s excellence and I look forward to working hard with the staff and the young people in our care to provide a first class education that meets the needs of all of the students in a very fast changing world.
I look forward to meeting you and working closely with you should you choose to send your youngster to Braunton School and Community College.
Mr David Sharratt MA, Principal
