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.

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

Change of date - Now Thurday 23rd June 


Sports Day arrangements

The morning activities are for all children from reception to year 6 and will start at 9:30. Parents from all classes are invited to watch and to stay for a picnic lunch on the field. Lunch from 12-1.

Key Stage 1 children who are having school dinner will need to eat in the hall. Sorry, but there is not enough room for you in the hall too, so we will send them out to you when they have finished. If you would rather picnic with your child instead of them having having their school meal, please let Belinda know in the office.

The afternoon races will start at 1:15, for children from Years 1-6. 

Children are to wear PE kit and a t-shirt the colour of their house. Children will need sun hats (hopefully!) and will need a bottle of water with their name on.

 We look forward to seeing you and fingers crossed for the weather!
