Welcome to Appledore School

Appledore School is located in the heart of an ancient fishing village, rich in maritime history, on the junction where the River Torridge meets the River Taw in beautiful North Devon.

We have approximately two hundred and fifty children, aged 3-11, taught in single age classes with names linked to the sea. Many are named after famous ships built in Appledore Shipyard and reflect our pupils' pride in their local heritage and community.

Through a rich and rigorous curriculum, our pupils play an active part in their local community and learn how to be prepared for life's opportunities, responsibilities and experiences now and in the future. The creative arts are of huge importance to us, not least because Appledore is a very creative and artistic community, and our dedicated art studio is the creative hub of the school and our main corridor is our art gallery.

We hope you can find the information you are looking for, but if you can't please do not hestitate to contact us and we will do all we can to help.  And as for the quotes, they are real!

From all the staff and pupils at Appledore School

The end of another excitable week running up to Christmas that started with our nursery and reception children performing a very special nativity early. So many of you came out to see it, including returning in the evening in atrociuos weather! Thank you for all of your support. Next week it is the turn of Years 1 and 2 on Tuesday (2pm and 6pm) and then our  carol service on Thursday (St Mary's church, 2pm) - we hope to see many of you at these celebrations.

Thank you to the PTA for their help and all the staff supporting the children with the making of their Christmas enterprise craft. Each year it gets more and more creative and the ginger scented kiln fired gingerbread man tree decorations are no exception!
