welcome to our website!
Our school is situated in the heart of the Taw Valley just 8 miles from Barnstaple. Umberleigh School serves a catchment area comprising of the parish of Umberleigh but draws children from a 12 mile radius of the school.
We have two classes, a Key Stage I class (4 to 7 year olds) and a Key Stage II class (8 to 11 year olds). The main school was built in 1913 and consists of a large Key Stage II classroom, a large dining hall/assembly hall/group lesson space, a staffroom, toilets, an office and a kitchen. The Key Stage I classroom is situated in a Devon Single Lady mobile classroom and is linked to the main building. Each classroom has it's own interactive whiteboard. The School has extensive outdoor facilities including a large playing field, a hard multi games court, an infant playground and school garden. There is also a trim trail with wooden play equipment, a shrubbery and a horticultural area together with an outdoor classroom for the infants. The latest addition is a fabulous Yurt which is used for outdoor learning and lessons such as science and geography.
