Bideford College is located in the historic port town of Bideford on the stunning North Devon coast. We moved into our brand new, state of the art buildings in September 2010, providing us with the facilities required to deliver a curriculum designed to meet the needs of all our students.
We have a clear strategy for continuous improvement characterised by a relentless focus on excellence in teaching and learning. Our vision is to ensure outstanding progress for all our students, achieved through proven, research led pedagogy that supports and nurtures academic development.
The college is proud of the broad and balanced curriculum that it offers our students in both the main school and in the sixth form. It offers the potential to develop a range of academic and vocational skills that prepares young people for careers in the 21st century. This is underpinned by a wealth of extra-curricular opportunities that nurtures the development of sporting, artistic and technical talents that sees our students succeed at a local, national and international level.
Bideford College is a caring community and we are proud of the inclusive school climate that has been created through the positive relationships developed between students and staff. We want our students to feel safe in the learning culture that exists in the classrooms of the college. If you would like to see this in operation either as a prospective parent or as someone with an interest in education in our local area it would be a pleasure to show you around.
