Welcome to Atlantic Academy.  We opened in September 2018, in the inspirational setting of the North Devon Coast, our new academy offers a unique secondary school experience.  We are a small school community, and pride ourselves on the passion and enthusiasm staff have for the education of our students.

Working as part of the Launceston College Multi-Academy Trust, we combine the benefits of specialist staff from a large organisation, with the community approach of a small school.  Students will have the chance to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding through the subjects they study, as well as the extra curricular activities which will be available.

As we grow to our full capacity over the coming years, we look forward to working with current and future parents to shape our futures together.  We welcome prospective parents and students to visit us, to see what Atlantic Academy has to offer.
