Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you so much for all the support you have shown us during our first weeks back at school.  Our school community has shown amazing positivity and resilience, adapting with good humour to the new systems in place and respecting the changing protocols.

The newest members of our community have also met our high expectations with smiles and enthusiasm.  Congratulations Year 7.  We're all very proud of you!

Welcome from the Headteacher

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.
