Brixham College is a very good school with a fantastic learning environment and ethos. We are rightly proud of being a comprehensive school providing first-rate educational opportunities for all children, irrespective of ability or aptitude.
Whilst academic success is very important, at Brixham College we believe that there is more to a good education. As well as ensuring our students succeed in exams, we aim to develop our values of high expectations, knowledge, character, leadership and continued improvement. Throughout their time at Brixham College, students are expected to contribute to our community and to society. We want students to try things they cannot do, to persist in the face of difficulty and to become resilient in overcoming obstacles. To approach life with a growth mindset and a can-do attitude.
To achieve this, we provide a breadth of opportunities and experiences which seek to help our students become confident, well-rounded and ambitious young adults. Our curriculum and co-curriculum is overflowing with opportunities to try something new and develop new skills. In addition to our very wide range of additional activities, our students enjoy trips abroad or various residential, university visits, talks by inspirational speakers, as well as countless opportunities to collaborate with their peers from other schools across the region.
We are incredibly proud to deliver a Values Led Education, an education that challenges, inspires and excites our students and prepares them for success in learning and success in life.
Our Values Led Approach to Education
Values are the most important part of education to us at Brixham College. All who work here share our values and understand the importance of creating opportunities to develop values with students and this is the foundation of success in learning and life. Get this right and the rest will follow whether that be academic excellence or the ability to be a productive, happy, resilient member of society.
The impact of our curriculum can be measured through several accountability measures but what is more important is what our students are like, what contribution will they make and what impact will they have as individuals in the community. This is the most important measure of our success and impact of our curriculum.
