Our aim is to ‘Open doors to a world of possibilities,’ which we do through the core principles laid out in our school charter.  We have developed a fantastic outdoor learning space, our 6th classroom, and every member of staff is asked to consider the question ‘why am I doing this indoors?’ when planning lessons and activities.

    Dartmouth Academy

    Education South West

    Children can only flourish when they feel safe and secure. That is why care is the foundation of all we do. We are a small, all-through Academy. This means that staff can get to know students and their families very well indeed, so they know how to move them forward in their learning, and when they need support in their personal lives. Students know and look out for each other too– whatever the age.
