Specialisms[edit]

Dartmouth Academy has two specialist subjects:

  • Visual Arts – specializing in Art and Design, Textiles, Media and Drama, and Photography.
  • Mathematics – early entry to GCSE/A Level examinations and attendance at university master classes will be features for older learners who are gifted and talented in this area.

The school states that it aims to reflect a culturally inclusive embryo. There are plans to develop partnerships with other schools, academies, further and higher education institutions, and businesses.

[edit]

The academy is sponsored by Kingsbridge Community College.[2] It is affiliated with local partner Britannia Royal Naval College, a center for the training of Royal Navy Officers who, along with Kingsbridge, support the academy. In 2014 it was announced that the school will be put under a different sponsor than E-ACT, where Kingsbridge Community college took over from 1 September 2014.

The academy also aims to work extensively with Devon County Council and to form close working relationships with local primary and secondary schools.
