Welcome to our website. We hope you find what you’re looking for, but if not, do get in touch. Better still, we’re ever so friendly and would love the opportunity to provide a tour of the school so you can see our wonderful place first hand!
You’ll find lots of information about the school on our website but if you really have to bypass the ‘paperwork’ pages, where you’ll find all the statutory documents, or skip past the Learning and Resources Pages, with lots of useful information for children and parents, make sure you don’t miss the BLOG section where you’ll really see the fantastic things that regularly take place at our lovely school!
Our 100 or so children come from the beautiful areas of Georgeham and Croyde and, even though we’re officially a small school, we certainly ‘punch above our weight’ – a lovely phrase I heard on the playground once.
Small School, Huge Horizons is a perfect description for our school; one that recognises that we’re small enough for every child to feel nurtured and confident, yet big enough in ambition to enable each and every child to grow and flourish! In making sure each child lives their lives to the fullest, we have 6 values that underpin this…
We are Kind – We are Curious – We are Confident – We are a Community – We are Adventurous – We are Ambitious
Being built in 1868, we’re celebrating being 150 years old! We still have the old log books and almost have to don white gloves to browse through the dusty records. We’ve helped some locals and some visitors, even previous evacuees, locate their names in the old school logs!
This year we’re really proud of becoming the UK’s 1st ever Plastic Free School. An award given to us by the charity Surfers Against Sewage after months of hard work. Our School Councillors did lots of work to almost completely eliminate the use of single-use plastic at school, but they also helped to encourage Devon County Council to massively reduce the use of single-use plastics at County Hall and the work that they do in Devon. We’re now supporting other schools to be environmentally aware after featuring in many of the National Newspapers after gaining our award and being mentioned by Education Minister, Damian Hinds!
I was really proud of opening a letter from Nick Gibb earlier this year too. 100% of our Year 6 children gained the Expected Standard score in Maths last year and therefore we were in the top 1% of the country for doing so. This testifies the effort and hard work the children and staff put in at our school and I am really proud of them.
Georgeham really is a special place. It’s not just me saying so, as we hear this from many visitors as we show them around and everyone always compliments the children for being so great. Please do get in touch and find out for yourself!
We hope you enjoy exploring our school website!
