Welcome to Orchard Vale Community School!
At Orchard Vale we believe that education should be inspiring for all children whatever their age and encourage them to be confident individuals with a deep love of learning!
We are based on the outskirts of Barnstaple North Devon, at the top of Whiddon Valley industrial estate. We currently have around 350 pupils learning with us which includes a 52 place Nursery and a Speech and Language Centre.
At Orchard Vale we have three core aims:
- High quality education through a culture of learning for all
- Commitment to working with and for our community
- Developing an understanding and commitment to sustainability
From our Nursery through to our year 6 classes, we aim to deliver high quality education through our broad and balanced curriculum so our pupils are articulate, confident and relish new challenges.
