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. 

Please read on to find out more about our school and how we work hard to embody our values:

Head Girl and Head Boy We offer our congratulations to Francesca Trimming and Harrison Jordan who were appointed as our next Head Girl and Head Boy this week. The role of Head Girl and Head Boy are key at our school and these two senior pupils meet with our senior staff regularly, play a leading role in College Senate (our pupil voice) and oversee arrangements for the end of year celebrations for Year 11. Many parents will have watched previous Head Girls and Boys at our Open Events and similarly a key role for our latest Head Girl and Boy will be representing the pupil-body at key College events and functions. We are incredibly proud of Francesca and Harrison, who were appointed to their roles in an incredibly competitive field of applicants. The process of selection for Head Girl and Boy is a long and demanding one. Pupils are required to seek five nominations from teachers at the school to present at their Year 10 Interview with Senior Staff. Following the interview, we examine pupils' academic, attendance and effort records and refine the longlist of candidates to a short list. The final group of candidates are then tasked to make a presentation to their peers in Year 10, which staff also see. From this, we conduct a pupil preference vote and invite staff comments and preferences. Finally, a recommendation to the Headteacher is made and a final decision taken. We are fortunate to have such a remarkable pupil body to draw our young leaders from and we look forward to sharing with you full details of our wider pupil leadership team next week. Mr Payne, Deputy Executive Headteacher
