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

School Funding
Funding enough money to provide all the resources and opportunities we want the children to have is increasingly challenging, but there is money out there we can claim that we haven't and we need your help please. All children were sent home with a letter requesting you provide us with some details and we will be then be able to systematically and regularly check to see if the school is entitled to additional money based on your circumstances. Please do complete the letter and send it back to us, even if you don't tick any boxes just yet, because once you are registered it will check in the future should your circumstances change. Please click here for the letter or ask the office for a copy. GDPR (data protection laws) laws are complied with.
