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. Our art studio, woodland and Appletree Initiative are the creative hubs of the school and our main corridor is our art gallery!

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

For once, we had good weather during a half term AND a bank holiday and it has continued now we are all back. This has enabled outdoor learning to recommence on our first day back and there is much planting going on around the site by the children. Competition is fierce for who can plant the sunflower that grows the tallest!

Please read on to find out about sports day, class teachers next year, Royal Marine Cadets and what has been going on in and round the school.

Wishing you all an enjoyable weekend

New club open to children in Dolphins (reception) to Year 6

We are hoping to open an afterschool gardening club to continue elements of outdoor learning the children have been experiencing during the school day. We've got a large polytunnel on site and now we need it operational!  Any potential profits from this club will be reinvested in the school's outdoor learning for the benefit of the children.
