At Teign we are committed to ensuring that we grow academically successful, aspirational, brilliant and resilient young adults who are equipped with the qualifications, skills and personal attributes to lead happy and fulfilling lives.

Teign is a vibrant, comprehensive community with staff placing student progress and success at the heart of everything we do. We embrace and grow a love of learning for our students through innovation, creativity and an excellent environment for achieving their personal aspirations. We understand the importance of community at Teign and work in partnership with parents, local schools and businesses to ensure that every student takes full advantage of the fabulous opportunities that the school and our multi-academy trust offers, both within the classroom and beyond.

At Teign we set high expectations of all our students and have a school culture of supporting one another in order to grow the ‘best’ mind-set in our children and to prepare them for the world after school. This is achieved through the delivery of a broad and balanced curriculum with students learning how to work collaboratively as part of a team and develop the leadership skills necessary to contribute positively to our society.
