Welcome to The Ilfracombe Academy

Situated on a beautiful coastal site overlooking the town and the Bristol Channel, we are an 11-18 church academy, part of the St Christopher’s Trust. We have more than 1000 students on roll including a popular and expanding Sixth Form. Our students come from a wide geographical area stretching from the surfing beaches of Woolacombe across Exmoor to Lynton and the Somerset border.

We serve and support our community providing a child-centred education that reflects Christian values. Respecting the dignity and potential of each individual person and sensitive to the needs of a diverse society we strive to enhance and strengthen our values of Hope, Kindness, Courage, Integrity, Trust, Respect and Responsibility.

These values are central to our school. We are committed to the highest standards of academic excellence; we are dedicated to providing the best possible education for all our students by developing the knowledge, understanding and skills essential for learning and leading a fulfilled life.
