Moorland Federation Governors

In September 2017 the First Schools, Cutcombe, Timberscombe, Dunster, Exford and Porlock joined together to form the Moorland Federation.  As such we share one governing body.


Growing together; learning for life.


The Moorland Federation is a supportive network of five schools in: Dunster, Timberscombe, Cutcombe, Porlock, and Exford. The Federation was formed to ensure the high quality of education in each of the First Schools is sustained through an exciting and forward thinking group of governors and Head teachers working with dedicated and highly trained staff.  We are a group of rural schools who are innovative and forward thinking in our approach to school development, proud of our local heritage and stunning landscape, who are all dedicated to improving the life chances of every child.  The Head teachers, and all staff, work highly cohesively, sharing good practice and workload to deliver the very best quality of education to our amazing pupils.
