We think of our school as being the perfect size with just one class per year group and an onsite teacher-led Nursery. The Topsham School places great emphasis on high academic standards and has a curriculum that is broad and balanced, with a particular focus on Art, Music and Sport. Our small and close knit atmosphere enables the curriculum and learning to be tailored more closely to individual children's needs. There is a committed and dedicated team of teachers and support staff all of whom strive to provide the very best quality of teaching and care. The school seeks to be at the heart of the community and works in strong partnership with parents. We hope that this site provides you with all the information that you need but we would encourage you to visit the school and see our vibrant and active community for yourself.
Location and Facilities
The school is set in fantastic grounds and is housed in a purpose built building. Views across the estuary from the playground, our sustainably focused gardens, specialist art and design teaching space, sports field, hall, drama studio and shepherds hut all help to provide an outstanding environment in which to learn. A breakfast club and after-school club provide ‘wrap-around’ childcare where required.
Acorns Foundation Stage Unit (FSU)
Our Foundation Stage Unit (FSU) is at the heart of the school and really is where the foundations for a love of learning are laid. Our FSU comprises Little Acorns (Nursery 3 and 4 year olds) and Big Acorns (Reception 4 and 5 year olds). Acorns is staffed by a team of highly experienced practitioners who strive to provide the best possible care and learning for our children. A distinctive feature of our nursery provision is that it is led and staffed by a qualified teacher who is supported by a team of qualified nursery and early years' practitioners. This high quality teacher-led provision ensures children get off to the very best possible start.
