Letter from Mr Hill (20/03/20)
Devon County Council has asked that all Key Workers complete the following survey so that numbers of Key Workers within our community can be calculated. You only need to complete this form if you are a Key Worker. Details on who the Government are classing as Key Workers can be found at the bottom of the form.

The government has produced a document that indicates who are Key workers.  Please click the link to navigate to the guidance (Government Guidance)  If you are expecting to send your child into school on Monday, please email the relevant Head of Year (as indicated in the letter dated 19 March) to ensure we can provide the support that is required.
Subject specific learning materials will be made available from Monday.  Online platforms such as MY Maths, Educake and Seneca can be used immediately.
Welcome from the Head Teacher

We are a successful 11-16 mixed comprehensive school whose student-centred philosophy ensures that we are committed to enabling every student to achieve their potential by fostering a culture where students believe that success is for all.

Traditional values underpin everything that we do. Our high expectations positively reinforce the highest standards of behaviour at all times and encourage students to show respect for themselves, others and the world around them. The development of positive relationships and student ownership of all aspects of school life are essential ingredients that make Pilton Community College special. 

We have a focus on internationalism and have twice been awarded International School status. This means that our students have exceptional opportunities to travel, meet people from different cultures and develop the skills they will need as they take on future challenges.

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. Opening doors to a range of careers and educational choices is at the heart of what we do, with staff going to extraordinary lengths to support students on their journeys.

Pilton Community College is a vibrant and exciting learning community of which we are all proud to be a part.

Kind regards,

Graham Hill
