School Week (A/B) Calendar



Activities week.  Payment for all trips should be made by 24th May please’



At our school we strive for academic excellence but also recognise the uniqueness of each of our young people and a main aim is to realise the potential of every individual. Your child may be gifted academically, they may be creative or artistic, they may be good at sport or getting on with their peers. Our aim is to find their talents and develop them.

We have high expectations of each and every pupil. Great store is put on self-discipline, good behaviour, uniform, homework and cooperation. These traditional values are at the heart of all we undertake at the College.

South Molton Community College is a friendly, orderly and successful school. I warmly invite you to become part of this success.

School Buses

Devon County Council are introducing a rule from 24th February whereby pupils who travel on school buses will not be allowed to board the bus without showing their bus pass to the driver.

Procedures for snow & school closure

In the event of snow the school may have to close because of transport and safety problems for pupils and staff. In this instance announcements will be made on the school website, Radio Devon and Heart Radio as early as possible to help parents and carers make arrangements should they need to do so. Devon County Council will also be informed and include the name of the school in its' school closure list for that day. Please be assured the Principal will never take the decision to close the school unless it is absolutely necessary. Thanks for your support and understanding in this matter.
