Dartington Church of England Academy

Together we grow, together we flourish

Dartington C of E Academy is a church school and our vision is “Together We Grow, Together We Flourish’ which underpins the curriculum that we provide for our wonderful pupils. We are strengthened and supported by being part of a wider community, The Learning Academy Partnership. As a Multi Academy Trust (MAT), we are a family of exceptional academies across Torbay and Devon who work together for the good of all our children and communities.

We believe in providing the children with a rich, vibrant curriculum which enables them to gain knowledge, develop skills but also develop as a learner, preparing them for the next step on their journey. We are a happy school, we care about each other and we are proud of how we work together as part of a wider community.
