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.

She did it! Mrs Markham (Head of PE) has ascended Mount Kilimanjaro. A tremendous endeavour and a wonderful achievement. Bravo!

We ascended approximately 1000m per day, including some tough climbing with lower oxygen levels. Then we woke up at midnight on the end of day 4 to climb the last section: to the summit. 7 hrs of walking (pole pole - slowly slowly) in the dark, -15 wind chill and very little oxygen... It was only my sheer stubbornness not to fail kept me going. 3 out of 4 of the team made it up. By the time I had this picture taken I was very close to hyperthermia and all I wanted to do was get off this mountain!!!! (My expression says it all!) No altitude effects (other than breathing a lot). After that, we still had to go descend the mountain. Over 24hrs, midnight to midnight. We walked for 15 hrs of them and made it down in just 2 days with very sore legs! It was the most wonderful experience; a humbling one. I have great respect for the porters that carried 20kg packs up in barely any suitable clothing. This was something I will remember for life (and never ever do again!).
