Chulmleigh College is a highly popular fully inclusive state secondary school for pupils age 11-16. Situated in a beautiful rural location, we pride ourselves on traditional values and high academic expectations for all pupils.
In recent years our school has grown by more than 40%, as our reputation across Devon is such that we are the chosen school for many families who live a great distance outside our designated school area. We are incredibly proud of this reputation and every member of staff works hard to sustain it.
It is part of the Chulmleigh Academy Trust, a group of three primary schools (East Worlington, Lapford and Chulmleigh) and Chulmleigh College.

North Devon Cross Country Championships 29th November at West Buckland School After a successful run at the Stephens Shield in Torrington in October, we took our keen and biggest ever group of runners to West Buckland. 29 runners, consisting of Years 7, 8 and 10, headed off to represent their school. Year 9 stayed at school for their exams. All pupils were a pleasure to take out and supported each other by encouraging wholeheartedly. All pupils ran really well, showing enthusiasm and determination on a very wet and slippery course. Luckily, the weather stayed dry and was a perfect temperature for our runners. The three year groups had to compete over varying distances and all successfully completed their route. Year 7 Isla Squire came an amazing 5th overall and Sophie Casavieille-Lacaze brilliantly came in 6th. Both girls will represent North Devon in January next year. The remaining eight Year 7 runners made us proud and they should all be delighted with their achievements. Year 8 boys, despite running with a strong field of Year 9s, showed great determination and all finished strongly. High up the field were Zak Cheriet, Harry Shere and Ben Venter. Year 8 girls had a strong team and went out in force against the Year 9s. All competitors did themselves proud. Evelyn Jones was the first one home for Chulmleigh. Well done Year 8. The Year 10 runners completed the longest course, and showed commitment throughout. Callum Jackson came 16th and Grace Shere 11th. Grace Shere will also represent North Devon in January. Super work Year 10. Well done runners, a great achievement by all, some first timers, some personal bests and lots of smiles. There was such super behaviour and sportsmanship and I look forward to seeing you at running club on Thursday lunchtimes. Mrs Casavieille-Lacaze
