School profile

Kingsbridge Academy

We are passionate about learning and ensuring that our learners thrive and grow amidst our beautiful surroundings here in South Devon.

We have high aspirations for every student and we strive to ensure that they are able to achieve their full potential through a clear focus on learning and achievement in a supportive environment. We recognise the benefits a first-class education brings and encourage our students to be ambitious and bold in their learning journey and to make the most of every opportunity.

We are proud of the excellent teaching, care and guidance that we offer, along with first class facilities and a wide range of opportunities in and beyond the classroom.

Our examination results are outstanding and the significant majority of our students go on into our 6th Form and from there to university. We invest in our staff by offering a bespoke and high-quality CPD programme, which covers opportunities for new teachers through to senior leaders.
