Welcome to High Bickington C of E Academy
Let your light shine: Life, Love and Learning to the Full
‘Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good works and glorify your father who is in heaven.’ (Matthew 5:16)
‘Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life in all its fullness.” (John 10:10)
At High Bickington Primary Academy we aim to help each child shine their light; to foster their own self esteem as well as to make a difference to the world around them. We work to build the foundations of life in all its fullness underpinned by our Christian values of Love, Respect, Perseverance, Truthfulness, Forgiveness and Friendship, where we understand what it means to be loved and to love others within our school and our local, national and global community.
Fundamental to our vision to educate for life in all its fullness, we are inspired by Jesus’ teaching about how each one of us can shine our light to change the world around us. This inspires us to build a school community where all are valued, all contribute and all belong. To achieve this, we work together on Building Learning Power, Building Communities, Building Self-Esteem and Building Futures.
High Bickington Academy is a vibrant and innovative small school situated in the lovely countryside of North Devon. As part of the TEAM Multi-academy Trust, the children benefit from an extensive range of curriculum opportunities not always available to a school of this size. Children take part in a range of residential trips and enjoy visiting our partner schools for a variety of activities. Our small classes ensure that children receive learning that is personalised, stimulating and enjoyable. Our school has an ethos where children's voices are heard and they are encouraged to develop important personal skills that develop their independence and ability to work with others. Our aim is for every child to achieve their very best and enjoy their time at High Bickington C of E Academy.
