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

Our intended running order is as follows...

The morning activities are for all children from Dolphins to Y6. Activities will start at 9:30. Parents can watch and follow teams around. The morning will finish with the long distance race at around 11:30. Children will go back to classes, they can be collected from class by family members to picnic on the field. The afternoon will start by 1:30 with races for all children from Y1-6 and should finish by 3:30. 

Please be aware that running such an event is not without its challenges and we will do all we can to follow this plan as closely as possible, but things can result in changes and we will do all we can to minimise any requried changes.  And fingers crossed for the weather of course..!
