Welcome to Route 39 Academy

I am delighted to welcome you to Route 39 Academy, our unique school on the North Devon coast, state-funded and open to all.

We have high aspirations for all our students and are focused on enabling them to achieve their very best. We do this by setting the bar high and giving everyone ambitious and challenging personal targets. With this approach we believe that our school can achieve results at least 10% above the national average. Underpinning this academic ambition, is that every student should emerge a confident individual with a wide range of skills. This will enable them to become successful life-long learners, in any walk of life.

Route 39 is a community where everyone – students, staff, parents and governors – takes great pride in the Academy and an active role in its growth. The Academy is directed by a passionate and dedicated group of governors, run by a committed and hard-working team of staff, and developed and grown by the students themselves. We also work closely with other schools and learning organisations to establish a high quality curriculum and effective teaching.

We are extremely proud of what we have all achieved since our opening. Across the school we are constantly striving to become ‘Outstanding’ in everything we do. Our ambition is to achieve recognition for our well-researched and innovative approach to education, and our close-knit, supportive community.

I look forward to meeting you to discuss how Route 39 Academy can provide your child with an education that will prepare them for life.

Joss Hayes, Principal
