About Us

On behalf of the children, staff and directors I would like to welcome you to Bere Alston Primary Academy.  Our school became a member of First Federation Trust in December 2019. 


We provide a caring, safe and stimulating environment for all children to learn. Our school values are central to all we do:


  • teamwork and collaboration
  • curiosity and a love for learning 
  • kindness
  • respect for ourselves, others and our planet
  • confidence and aspirations
  • perseverance


Our dedicated staff team, support and encourage all children. The school itself is spacious and well resourced.  We are also fortunate to have extensive outdoor areas where the children learn and play. There is also a large,indoor, purpose-built sportshall.  


There have been many positive changes since our last Ofsted report and we welcome visitors. If you would like to see for yourselves, please contact us and we can arrange to give you a guided tour and to answer any questions that you may have.

A Brief History!

Bere Alston is one of the oldest village primary schools in Devon. In 1665 Sir John Maynard opened a school for boys. This building now houses our staffroom, Library, IT suite and the Den.

In 1912 a further building was added to the school. Then in 1995/96 a new extension was added to the existing building which provides the school with 6 classrooms and a Community Sports Hall.
