About us

Age range: 11 to 16

Address: Victoria Hill, Holsworthy, Devon, EX22 6JD

We are a vibrant, successful centre of learning for a large rural area of beautiful North Devon with twelve feeder primary schools,  although  parental  preference  sees us recruit from wider afield, as we are deemed to offer something different. The College is a Foundation school with a Co-operative Trust. It is a mixed comprehensive, 11 – 16 day school and a member of the Holsworthy Area federation with some of its feeder primaries under a single governing body.

Our core purpose is to provide quality learning for all and to prepare our community for life in a fast changing world.This means ensuring first rate academic success as well as providing the opportunities for personal growth through a wide range of cultural, social and challenging experiences in travel, sport, music and debate.

Our Vision

This educational community seeks to provide a happy and stable environment in which all who are part of it can be helped to develop their full potential.

We seek to develop respect for, and the understanding of, self, other people and the environment.

We believe we are here to learn and that learning is fundamental to our development.

  • This community of pupils, parents, teaching staff and support staff recognises the value of learning and is committed to ensure that each of us has the opportunity to develop our strengths.
  • We will respect each other and other’s views. We aim to develop understanding of ourselves, other people and our environment.  
  • We recognise that the world is changing fast and that we have a responsibility to prepare youngsters with the relevant skills for adulthood.
  • We will challenge young people to fulfil their potential through positive involvement in an inspiring and stimulating environment.
  • We will provide a caring environment where young people are able to develop and work as members of a community.We will work with the local community and develop close links between the College and the area which it serves and encourage all young people to recognise their present and future responsibilities.

Welcome to the Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust

We are committed to creating an ambitious, forward thinking learning environment for all our pupils, students and staff and providing the best possible education for local children from 2 to 18 years.

Our Trust was created in January 2018 based on a shared vision which embraced our Cooperative values and those of our Church of England schools. We now include three secondary schools and 16 primary schools in our Trust, helping just under 5000 children and 720 staff to thrive.

Our pupils and staff all enjoy the wonderful opportunities that Devon has to offer, and we recognise that working across our schools collaboratively ensures that the challenges of rurality, transport and communication don’t stop anyone from achieving their full potential, from our smallest schools with under 30 pupils, to our large secondary schools with over 1400 on roll.

Each school ensures its curriculum is broad, challenging and relevant for the communities it serves and recognises the need to produce global citizens for the future.

We welcome applications from committed people who share our vision. In return, you will have access to an outstanding CPD programme, which will enable you to continue to develop and grow as both an excellent teacher, leader or support staff member.
