The North Devon Personalised Learning Service (NDPLS) converted on the 1st March 2015 to Sponsored Academy status. We remain part of a county-wide education provision – under The SchoolsCompany Academy Trust – that works with young people who have been excluded from school or who have additional needs that are preventing regular attendance at school. We work in partnership with other organisations to make sure that young people have their needs identified and met by those schools, services and communities that are in place to support their growth and development.

SchoolsCompany North Devon Academy specialises in delivering personalised learning programmes that are designed to meet the needs of individual students. Our aim is to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that encompasses core subjects, Learning Outside the Classroom and a range of practical, creative, physical and vocational subjects. We aspire to all Y11 students leaving with qualifications that may include GCSEs, BTec, Functional Skills, Arts Award and AQA Unit Awards. We place a strong emphasis on therapeutic support and use a Thrive –based approach in addition to offering mentoring, counselling and enrichment activities
