There are important changes to the College uniform coming in January 2019. For full information, click here.

These are exciting times in our community and I am proud and privileged to lead the College.

Following a short inspection which took place in September we are delighted to share the news that Ofsted has judged Brixham College to be a good school once again.


The judgement follows another year of historic highs at both GCSE and A Level; This summer our learning community celebrated its highest ever set of examination results, the highest number of passes and the highest levels of progress and performance.


As well as referring to this year’s excellent examination results and outstanding subject results, Ofsted also recognised that we’re still raising the quality of teaching, strengthening learning, continually improving and closing the gap for those who need additional support.  Inspectors also saw that, as one of our highest priorities, safeguarding continues to be effective.


We’re pleased to have received such a positive outcome and have highlighted the main strengths identified by Ofsted’s Inspectors below.  However, the full report is now available on Ofsted’s website and can be accessed via the College website.


Ofsted 2017:  The highlights


SAFEGUARDING:  Ofsted recognised Brixham College’s strong culture of safeguarding where parents feel that communication with school staff is good and that their children receive the support they need.


EXAM RESULTS: “2017 examination results show an increased number of the highest grades, particularly in English…. Subjects are well led and pupils make progress in every subject.”


LANGUAGES:  Brixham College is celebrating a “real success story for the languages department’ where the quality of the teaching has resulted in a significant improvement in GCSE performance and more students choosing languages as a GCSE option.


LEADERSHIP:  In its report Ofsted also praised Brixham College’s strong focus on values; its experienced, good, strong, motivated leadership and governance; its strong team ethos and its well trained teachers and leaders.  Ofsted also stated that relationships between school leaders and external agencies were good and supported vulnerable pupils.


TEACHING STRENGTHOfsted appreciated that teachers at Brixham College have the skills and training to challenge the most able pupils effectively whilst extending and deepening their thinking; that significant improvements have been made to the quality of teaching and pupils’ rates of progress are increasing across all year groups as a consequence.


Ofsted also praised the SIXTH FORM at Brixham College:  “Progress in the Sixth Form also continues to improve each year.  The quality of teaching and the programme of study is good.  Students value the expert subject knowledge of teachers, have good pastoral support, value the enrichment opportunities available and are well supported with careers advice and guidance.”


MAKING CONTINUAL PROGRESS:  Inspectors also found that Brixham College had responded well to challenges raised in the last Ofsted to raise levels of attendance.  Also, that progress for boys continues to improve as a result of staff training alongside focused and robust initiatives designed to raise expectations, boost motivation and invigorate a commitment to learning.


We’re effectively embedding the new teaching initiatives, techniques and learning strategies which have made the most impact, across the school.  As these take root, we will find ourselves in an even stronger position at the next Ofsted Inspection and we would like to thank you for your continuing support.


It’s the incredible focus, perseverance and commitment of our staff, parents, carers and students which make Brixham College the success it is.   I’m incredibly proud of what we have achieved and what we are still able to achieve, moving forwards.  I strongly believe that an ‘outstanding’ grade is within touching distance and by working together we can continue to provide the highest quality education your child deserves within a safe, focused and positive learning environment.  Our future looks exciting!


I hope you have an enjoyable half term break.


Yours sincerely


Mark Eager
