What the school says...

Swimbridge Primary School is situated amid rolling Devon countryside, 4 miles south east of Barnstaple, close to the Atlantic coastline. The school was originally founded in the 18th century, although the present building was constructed in 1866, with further classrooms added in the 1920s and 1990s, with an new admin block in 2003, the year the school topped the Primary League Tables for the South West, coming 25th in the country. We are currently the top Primary in North Devon. But SAT results and league tables are not what are really important. We aim for a happy learning environment - of excellence and enjoyment.

Although a small school we are able to cover all areas of the National Curriculum in our own unique style. We endeavour to maintain a friendly, caring family atmosphere conducive to learning. We have been especially sucessful 'bringing on' children with special needs and developing the skills of the more able. At Swimbridge EVERY child is special.

There is so much more about our school. Why not visit to get a flavour of our school?
