Barnstaple is a busy town that has a developing industrial base and is the commercial and administrative centre of North Devon. It has been successful in the Britain in Bloom Competition and in recent years has won the Regional, European and International trophies. With the North Devon Link Road, connecting the area with the national motorway system, Barnstaple and its surrounds are planned to grow further in the future.
The North Devon countryside is outstandingly beautiful. The coast varies from wild cliffs to the magnificent surfing beaches of Saunton, Croyde, Woolacombe and Westward Ho! Exmoor National Park lies just to the north and Dartmoor to the south. These natural features form the basis of the tourist industry in the area.
The school is very pleasantly situated, overlooking the River Taw, its estuary and the town of Barnstaple with its beautiful views of the surrounding Devon countryside.
The buildings are overall of high quality, linked together and surrounded by twenty-seven acres of playing fields and parkland.
Our substantial building programme has provided a full range of well-equipped modern learning environments.
A community sports hall and floodlit artificial turf pitch is managed by the school to the benefit of both the school and the community. Further sporting facilities have been developed including a new floodlit regional netball centre of six courts.
