Witheridge C of E Academy


Welcome to Witheridge C of E Academy

Our school is a thriving village school set in the beautiful North Devon countryside near Tiverton. We are a caring and happy school with a passion for children's learning and well-being.  As a small school we are able to personalise the learning every child receives and offer an enriches curriculum that is enhanced by our membership of TEAM Academy Trust.  This provides us with the opportunity to work closely with our partner schools and give our children a range of opportunities not always available to schools in rural settings.  Our school currently has just under 100 pupils who are inspired by high quality teaching coupled with excellent facilities.

Mission Statement

‘Encourage One Another and Build Each Other Up’

1 Thessalonians 5: 11

We are a church school, grounded in a belief in God who created and loves us. We aim to inspire and enable all children to become independent, resilient, aspirational and joyful lifelong learners, within a caring and encouraging Christian environment. We are committing to ensuring that every child’s spiritual, intellectual, creative, emotional and physical needs are met. The school community will encourage and enable parents to participate in and support their child’s learning. As part of the rich and varied experiences we offer our children, they will be given opportunities to engage with and contribute to the wider communities of the church, local area and the world.
