Our Achievements

Success for all


Building futures and transforming lives for over a decade.

 Honiton Community College has been an Academy for over a decade and, in that time, has supported countless students from the local community to achieve their goals and to emerge from their education as rounded individuals who are fully prepared for their future. 

High achievers at Honiton Community College

Due to Covid-19, the summer’s Year 11 GCSE and Year 13 A-level/BTEC results were based on Teacher Assessed Grades (TAGs). Our staff worked incredibly hard to submit accurate grades, and we are very proud both of them and of our students, all of whom were all able to move onto their chosen next steps. In addition, the analysis shows that we were in line with national results.


At GCSE 78.79% of the cohort achieved a standard pass (grades 9 to 4) in English and 74.24% of the cohort achieved a standard pass in Mathematics. We are extremely proud of the whole year group whose Progress 8 score was +0.22.


Post-16 student results have been good again this year. Building on their GCSE results, they have produced excellent value added (progress) at Post-16 with 70% of the cohort achieving a Grade C and above. The average score for our vocational subjects was distinction minus. 

Rated Good by Ofsted!

To ensure that standards are continually assessed, the Academy operates a programme of lesson observations and learning walks, which are undertaken by middle leaders and the Executive Leadership Team. The Academy was inspected by OFSTED in May 2016 and was judged as ‘Good’

Improved facilities at Honiton Community College

In 2014 the College secured £1.61M funding from the Academies Capital Maintenance Fund (ACMF) to build a new Technology and Languages block. The building was completed in June 2015 and provides state of the art classrooms for our students.

In April 2016 the College was awarded £217k by the Education Funding Agency’s Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) to refurbish the English Building. The College was fortunate to be one of only thirteen schools in Devon to be successful in this bidding process. The refurbishment consisted of a replacement roof, new windows, re-decoration throughout, new ceiling finishes, new lighting and new flooring.

In September 2016 the College obtained a further £1.8M from the CIF to replace the old gymnasium building with a state-of-the-art Sports and Fitness building. Work was completed in September 2017 and this new facility is now open to students and staff. The new facilities consist of a gym, four sets of changing rooms, a departmental office, three classrooms, an ICT Suite, dance studio and state of the art fitness suite with cardio and strength and conditioning equipment.

Honiton Community College awarded £930,000 for complete refurbishment of its Science Block

In April 2018 the College was successful in obtaining a further £930,000 from the CIF to refurbish its oldest Science Block. Work was completed in October 2018. The refurbishment includes a new roof, windows, internal and external doors, ceilings, lighting, flooring, decoration throughout, completely new gas, water and electrical systems along with new laboratory fixtures and fittings.

Continued support for Honiton Community College with £335,000 award from the Condition Improvement Fund

In 2020 the College was successful in securing £335k from the CIF to replace roof coverings on a number of college buildings, in addition to updating guttering, fascias and internal ceilings that had suffered water damage.
