Education & Learning
Dunchideock does not have a school (this closed in 1960 when the school building was transferred to a Trust to operate a village hall). Children of primary school age either go to Ide Primary School or to Doddiscombsleigh school and then usually transfer onto a secondary school in Exeter or Teignmouth. There are also private schools in the area. Below is a list of schools with contact telephone numbers and websites - note this list is not comprehensive.
