Teign School staff put student progress and achievement at the heart of all they do and students feel that they belong in an institution that sets high expectations. Each subject challenges students in an environment where we recognise and celebrate high achievement. Equally, we are confident in supporting all students by removing their barriers to learning to achieve these goals.
