Learn to Live Federation

Devon County Council is currently consulting on increasing pupil numbers at Bidwell Brook School from 95 to 110.  The deadline to respond to this consultation is 29th March 2017 at 5 pm via schoolconsultations@devon.gov.uk.  Further information can be found here.


Ellen Tinkham School is part of the Learn to Live Federation which also includes Bidwell Brook School located in Dartington, South Devon.

Bidwell Brook is a “good” school educating around 100 pupils aged between 3-19 years of age. All the students have special educational needs.

Jacqui Warne is the Executive Head at both schools and is supported by experienced senior leaders who are based across the whole Federation. Pupils and staff from both schools work closely with each other and have forged strong links in both the classroom and in additional activities such as residential trips, sports events and rural skills work.

This successful Federation was formed in June 2014 and has a single Governing Body chaired by Kate Mythen.
