The Link Academy Trust - Employer

Our Academy incorporates the nine small schools of Bearnes, Cheriton Bishop, Diptford, Harbertonford, Hennock, Landscove, Stoke Gabriel, Tedburn St Mary and Yeoford. Four of the schools are situated in rural villages around the town of Totnes, set within the beautiful South Hams region of Devon. Hennock is on Dartmoor and is known as “the school with a view”, Bearnes Primary is a village school set within the heart of the market town of Newton Abbott and Cheriton, Tedburn St Mary and Yeoford are in the Crediton area just to the north east of Dartmoor.

The schools within our Multi-Academy Trust are vibrant and exciting places to work in, yet our small size enables us to know every child and build strong relationships with each family. All our schools have good reputations built on high standards and a caring ethos, but we are always looking for ways to improve so that we meet the challenges of preparing children for the future.
