Braunton Academy (formerly Braunton School and Community College) is a coeducational secondary school with academy status in Braunton, North Devon, England. The school specialises in mathematics and computing.

The school first opened in 1937 with 140 pupils, and now has around 660 pupils aged 11 to 16.

The school has sports facilities which include four tennis courts, climbing wall, dance studio, access to Tweedies Field and the North Devon Athletics Track. A new multi-usage games area was opened in 2014 supported by Fullabrook and is used by the school as well as being accessible to local primary schools and to other sports clubs.
