Rooted and Growing - Together we Love Learning


I am delighted to welcome you to the website of the West Exmoor Federation. Our federation comprises of three small, rural primary schools; Lynton CE (VA) Primary School, Parracombe CE (VC) Primary School and Kentisbury Primary. Our schools are situated within nine miles of each other on the beautiful North Devon coast, close to or within the Exmoor National Park - an enviable environment within which to learn.

The schools within our federation have long and proud histories of serving their three beautiful, rural communities and each has its own unique identity. Now operating together as one organisation, with one Governing Body and Leadership Team, we are best placed to offer our children the highest possible standard of 21st Century teaching and learning. 

Our federation prides itself on providing a friendly, caring, family environment within which children can flourish. We seek to stimulate the love of learning in our children so that they want to learn for themselves and achieve to the very best of their abilities. Every child is valued as an individual and encouraged to find their best-selves within a setting where they are happy, well cared for and, most importantly, where they care for each other.

I look forward to welcoming you to our federation. Our children are our best ambassadors. Come and meet them!

Executive Headteacher

The children of the federation marked Armistice Day with a Remembrance Service at Woody Bay.  They laid poppies in the Remembrance Garden before enjoying a ride on the Woody Bay steam train, pulled by the engine Axe which served on the front-line in France during WWI.
