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!

Please read on to find out what has been happening in and around the school...
...by voting at Tesco for our project from Monday 31st October to Sunday 13th November.
We are all very pleased to have achieved the Artsmark Gold Award as a result of all the brilliant Arts learning and achievements at our school and in our community. We would like to celebrate with an ‘All that glitters is GOLD’ themed day of creativity on Thursday 10th November.
Please could everybody wear golden coloured clothes on that day; anything that you can find that is metallic, shiny, gold, yellow, orange or brown would be fantastic. The local press will be joining us to photograph us in all our glory.
Thank you for your continued support in all things Arts at Appledore School.
