Our New Residential Block

Welcome to Marland School

Marland is one of 10 special schools in the Devon wide SENtient Co-operative Foundation Trust and is maintained by Devon County Council’s Local Education Authority.

The school caters for the needs of Year 2 – Year 11 students who have Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs (SEMH), based across three separate sites in North Devon.

September 2018 onwards:  Two ‘Day School’ sites providing co-educational education for students from the North Devon area (currently boys only on roll).

  • Marland Primary (Bideford): 30 students, Year 2 – Year 7.
  • Marland Secondary (Barnstaple): 36 students, Year 7 – Year 11.

A third site located at Peters Marland (near Great Torrington) offers residential provision for up to 40 Year 6 – Year 11 male students from across the whole of Devon.

Our overall aim is to provide high quality, personalised support, care and education to each and every one of our students, helping each to develop into happy, independent, well-educated and socially confident young adults with a positive place in society.


“We are a school first and foremost and proud of our students and their achievements.”
