Exmouth Community College is a fully comprehensive academy where success is rewarded and students’ individual aptitudes are given the chance to develop. We offer a safe, secure, non-threatening environment in which students develop consideration for others, self-discipline and positive relationships. In July 2013 Ofsted inspected the college and noted how the college’s “inspirational leadership produces an extremely harmonious school where teaching is often outstanding; student achievement is good and their behaviour is exemplary” and that “students’ attainment is rising rapidly and attitudes to learning are extremely positive”.

Exmouth Community College is committed to giving the best education, opportunities and care to our pupils and to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. A satisfactory Enhanced DBS (formerly CRB) Clearance will be required prior to commencement of employment.
