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. New for this year is our community art studio and a new values curriculum that includes P4C (Philosophy for Children). 

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

Due to being previously graded a 'Good' school we received one of the newer style one day inspections yesterday. The purpose of this inspection was to ensure ywe have successfully acted on the development points from your previous inspection (3 years ago) and to check that we remain a Good school.  Whilst we are not permitted to share the official outcome at this stage, I am able to say that the day went well and there were no unpleasant suprises.

The children and staff were excellent yesterday and the expected outcome will be a true reflection of their commitment and hard work.

Thank you to all who completed the on line parent survery and/or spoke to the inspector. 

Best wishes

Jeremy Cooper
