Welcome to South Dartmoor Community College, situated in Ashburton, Devon.
The core guiding principle that lies at the heart of everything we do at South Dartmoor Community College is to encourage and develop personal responsibility among all members of our community.
We believe in empowering students to take control of their own learning and their own lives so they know how to make good choices and also have the ability to thrive in a fast moving, ever changing world.
By creating a learning environment that has high expectations of everyone - and by modelling the behaviour that we expect from our students - we can provide the stepping-stones that bring dreams closer to reality.
The College is situated within the boundary of Dartmoor National Park and has an attractive rural setting. Most facilities are on our main campus on Balland Lane, with our Sixth Form Centre (Place House) and our extensive Sports Grounds and Facilities less than a couple of minutes walk away.
Please come and visit us - every day is open day at South Dartmoor - please contact our reception team to arrange your visit.
