Welcome to a world of education, learning and opportunities

Pilton Community College is a very successful 11 - 16 mixed comprehensive school. We have high standards and high expectations and we aim to help each and every student to succeed. A love of learning is our priority and the pastoral system supports the students in their academic and personal development. The calm, caring and purposeful learning environment is commented on by all of our visitors and this helps our students to achieve beyond expectations and to be challenged to improve on their personal best.

Ofsted inspections, including our most recent in June 2012, consistently comment on the exemplary behaviour and excellent quality of work demonstrated by our students, the mutual respect that is evident between students and staff, and the high quality learning environment. The school has a specialism in Languages, and have twice been awarded International School status.  This focus means that our students have exceptional opportunities to travel, meet people from different cultures and develop the skills they will need to become global citizens in the 21st century. 

We aim to develop confident, independent, flexible, self-disciplined and considerate young people. Our students have opportunities in and beyond the classroom to develop their academic, sporting, creative and leadership qualities. They go on from us to a range of career and educational choices, including accessing some of the most prestigious sixth forms and universities, such as Atlantic College and Cambridge.  Pilton Community College is a vibrant and exciting learning community of which all are proud to be a part.
