Pilton Community College is a member of Ventrus Multi-Academy Trust, having joined in August 2016. This is a Devon-based Trust of 12 schools, who collaborate closely to bring about school improvement in all our settings. The Trust has approval for further growth with five new schools joining in the next few months.
At Pilton Community College, we believe that everyone is capable of self-transformation and we actively promote the view that success is gained through hard work and commitment to learning. We are determined to achieve the best possible educational outcomes for our students, in order to prepare them for the challenges of life as young adults. Our key aim is to support our young people to develop the skills and abilities that will enable them all to succeed and to realise their hopes and dreams. We recognise the importance of preparing them for further and higher education according to individual needs and interests, as well as supporting them to succeed in the world of work. We believe that education has a pivotal role in helping shape aspirations and in addressing issues of inequality.
