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.

Year 8 Ten Tors – Camp 2 (Boys) Our Year 8 group's Ten Tors training is reaching its final stages, with the Challenge in just a few weeks' time. The boys completed their second camp (the girls having done theirs a few weeks ago) in extremes of weather, and the boys had the challenge of walking under both baking-hot sunshine and torrential rain. It was hard walking in these conditions, not least because it was the longest walk the boys have done to date, with several decent hills thrown in. However, they met the challenge with enthusiasm and determination, and as the girls did in their second camp, they completed both days' walks in good time and in great spirits. The boys' campcraft was excellent, with the tents being pitched quickly and efficiently, with no input from the adults being necessary; when they packed up the following day, the site was left spotlessly clear, without a trace of the group being left behind – they've learned quickly. The boys cooked their own evening meals on Saturday evening as usual, though they were slightly spoiled on Sunday morning (don't tell the girls' group), with Mr Johnson making bacon sandwiches for everyone. Our participants now have just one more training walk to go before they face their 25 mile overnight challenge next month, finishing in the beautiful grounds of Buckfast Abbey, and it's fantastic that we still have over a quarter of our year 8s involved in the training. They've done extremely well. Thanks as always go to our adult volunteers, who this time were staff members Mrs Houghton and Mr Johnson, trust director Rozz Algar, parent volunteer Tim Payne, and my co-manager Jon Houghton (and his dog Clover).
