Welcome from the Academy Head

Welcome to our school website.  We hope that it gives you a “flavour” of our wonderful school and all we have to offer and that you can find the information that you are looking for.  You can also find out more about what we have been doing on our Facebook page. 

We are part of the Link Academy Trust, a Trust that is passionate about providing Big Opportunities in Small Schools.  We work closely with all the other 14 schools, in particular with Diptford, our “sister school”. 

We are small, thriving Church School in the village of Harbertonfordjust outside the town of Totnes, in South Hamsan Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  Built in 1963, our school achieves high academic standards through the provision of an exciting curriculum, that makes the most of our beautiful surroundings and our caring, nurturing environment. 
 
Our school is a vibrant and exciting place and we place a strong emphasis on the importance of family and community; being a small school enables us to know all our children and understand their needs, talents, interests and motivation. We believe passionately that every child is unique.  We aim to help them discover their potential and enable them to fulfil it, whilst valuing their individuality and developing the whole child. We have high standards and our caring ethos ensures that we strive to meet the challenges of preparing children for the future in the 21st century, instilling a lifelong love of learning on the way. 

Our team of dedicated Staff, Parents and Governors work together to ensure that we are always improving and that we offer broad and varied curriculum that ensures we make the most of learning opportunities and experiences both inside and outside the classroom, from Pre-school/Nursery through to Year 6.  We are so proud of all we do and would relish the opportunity to share our approach and ethos with you. 
 
We hope you enjoy exploring our website. If you would like to know more about our School, please contact us or come for a visit. We would love to show you around!
