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 pliease click here to see this in action! Recent additions to our curriculum include our 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
