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.

The College is set in the most beautiful surroundings: a large park, ringed by rising woodland and Dartmoor, bordered by the Okement River on one side and rolling farmland on the other.
The buildings are a mixture of Victorian Grammar School, modern three storey central block and mid 20th century blocks. There is a recently built theatre with specialist music and practice rooms. A modern Technology and ICT building offers high class teaching and learning accommodation.
The extensive playing fields are complemented by a large all weather-pitch with flood lighting, a Sports Hall and a gym. All of this has been added to by the building of a new Sports Centre (thanks to the work of a community action group).
Okehampton College will achieve the best possible standards for our students and our staff. We will continue to be a successful and high performing school. We will always strive to raise the aspirations of all of our students through working closely with the wider community.
