Welcome to Dartmouth Academy

Open since September 2010, with modern purpose-built facilities from 2014, we are one of a small but growing number of schools nationally which offer education for children from ages 3-16.

At Dartmouth Academy, staff are passionate in their commitment to our core message: our future successes are built on the work we do today.

As an all-through Academy, we believe in building long-lasting relationships with pupils and their families and take pride in being at the heart of our community. Children flourish when they feel safe and secure; care underpins all that we do.

Woven throughout both our aspirational curriculum and ethos of empathy and understanding is the drive for every child to be a scholar in their learning. Staff create and teach academically-rich schema whilst understanding, and planning to overcome, the barriers a child may face. The concept of scholarship drives the role which staff play in being instrumental to every child’s development, not simply in their academic achievements but also as a person.

From the moment pupils arrive into our Early Years Foundation Stage, we share with them the school mantra that fosters both academic success as not a measure of ability but an indication of how hard pupils work: Be Your Best Self.
