Choosing the right school is a very important decision for a parent.

At Woolacombe National Support and Teaching School we like to meet prospective parents so that a member of our staff can take you around the school and discuss school life. You can ring the School Office and make an appointment to meet the Head of School and to discuss your child’s educational needs.


Applications are presently administered by Devon Local Authority. If you would like your child to attend Woolacombe School please see the Devon Local Authority Web Page. This will give you all the information you will need to apply to our school.

For further advice you can either speak to our school administrative staff on 01271 870551 or the Local Authority’s Education Helpline on 0345 155 1019.
