This is a great opportunity for new entrants or experienced colleagues to join a dynamic and supportive department.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.
