Dawlish College is a fully inclusive secondary school located in a beautiful part of South Devon. While the College is big enough to offer a full range of curriculum options from traditional GCSE courses such as History and Spanish through to more applied courses such as Health and Social Care and Business Studies we are also small enough to know individual students which leads to a very special ethos within the College.

“Senior Leaders have been successful in establishing a positive culture that supports pupils’ all-round personal development and their physical and emotional wellbeing” Ofsted December 2016

The College is in a very exciting phase of its development as we are currently in a Formal Management Partnership with Newton Abbot College. The pace of improvement is rapid as we build on our successes and aspire to excellence.

About Us

Dawlish College is a wonderfully welcoming and happy college where individuality is celebrated and expectations are high. We take pride in ourselves, our learning and our environment and are constantly seeking to maximise outcomes for all.

Our pastoral care is effective in supporting our young people as they mature from children into young adults and we take our duty to create citizens of the future seriously.

Within a culture where everyone is a learner, mistakes are valued as part of making progress and success is celebrated whilst still expecting more. We are passionate about extending learning opportunities beyond the classroom and provide a rich array of enrichment activities for students.

As with everything in life, you get out what you put in. Life at Dawlish College is no different. With a broad and balanced curriculum, staff that are passionate about learning and a culture of supportive challenge, Dawlish College is a place where ambition is unlocked.
