Welcome To Pilton Bluecoat Academy


Dear Parents/Carers

I know the coming weeks/months will be a struggle for many, in one way or another, but we’ll get through this because we’ll take care of ourselves and our loved ones. At the risk of sounding too corny, let’s think about ‘dancing in the rain’ rather than ‘waiting for the storm to pass’ and make the most of every precious minute. Happier times will come.

Keep safe everyone,

Rhian Nicholas

TEAM Multi-Academy Trust CEO

Life, Love and Learning to the Full

Judged to be an 'Excellent' Church of England School (SIAMS Inspection November 2019) 

Welcome to Pilton Bluecoat Academy, a friendly and happy school, where we put an equal emphasis on high academic achievement alongside personal and social development. As a Church of England school we link our children's personal growth to well defined Christian values that provide a secure roadmap for life. Importantly, we warmly invite all children and families from our local area to be part of our school community.

Our school is situated on the edge of the North Devon town of Barnstaple and provides education for children in Years 3,4,5 and 6. The school has an excellent reputation and provides a vibrant and harmonious community for its children and staff. Our children benefit from a wide range of curriculum activity and specialist teaching, with much of their learning taking place away from the classroom in a practical and active context.

The school is part of the TEAM Multi-Academy Trust along with its rural partners from Brayford, Umberleigh, High Bickington and Witheridge Academies.

Ian Thomas

Head of School
