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

All our Key Stage 2 classes ran in the cross country event at Moreton Park today against six other schools and with considerable success! 

We had plenty of medal winners with two runners coming first (Emily and Louise), three coming second (Zac, Tigerlily and Finley) and four coming third (Ava, Leo, Bea and Oliver)/ Not only that, Year 3 and Year 5 won trophies for best boys and girls combined teams and Year 4 and Year 6 teams came second.

Lots of mud, lots of smiles and lots to be proud of. Well done all runners for taking part and staff and parents for supporting the children.
