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. 

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

We have been able to shift a few things around so that we can try to run the races tomorrow morning. We aim to start at 9.30am and be finished by 11.30am. Children can come to school in their PE kits and you are most welcome to come and watch the races.

Please continue to monitor this website for any last minute news, including checking before you set off tomorrow.

The children did wonderfully well this morning, but the temperature is rising so we have made the decision to cancel the races this afternoon. At 1pm children will return to their classes and can be collected at 3.30pm.  If you were planning to arrive early to have lunch with your children, please do still come. 

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
