Whimple is a popular village in East Devon, about nine miles from Exeter, with easy access to the airport and the M5 motorway. We are just off the A30 and have a railway station with a good service to London (Waterloo) and Exeter. The village has a friendly and thriving community with a local shop, Post Office, Parish Church, Heritage Centre, unisex hairdresser and two pubs.
The school is set in the heart of the village, next door to the village hall which we use daily for PE, assembly and lunches etc. The pre-school also meets in a room at the back of the hall, enabling us to have a close working relationship which in turn ensures a smooth transition into school.
At Whimple school we provide a safe, caring and friendly environment in which pupils can work and play. We are fully committed to ensuring that all pupils have the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
