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 Routine
I am sure you have noticed that we have installed a new fence at the bottom of our car park. As a result, not only has this almost doubled the amount of space children have to play it has also increased the security of the site during and after school hours.
We have now added a lock to the gate on this fence and nee to explain site access arrangements, so please read this article.
