Welcome to Exeter School: a school of great character.

At Exeter School, we believe that education is not just about academic excellence but also about nurturing the character and potential of each individual. Exeter School has a rich history spanning nearly four hundred years, during which we have been committed to providing a holistic and well-rounded educational experience to our pupils.

We are now a day school for approximately 1,030 pupils aged 3-18 years, having welcomed Exeter Pre-Prep into the family. Our early years are based in The Avenue, Exminster, with Years 3+ based at our 25 acre campus in the heart of Exeter city itself, on Victoria Park Road.

With a dedicated team of passionate educators, we strive to create a supportive and inclusive environment that fosters the growth and development of our pupils. Our emphasis on character education is what sets us apart. We believe in instilling strong values, integrity, and resilience in our pupils, preparing them to become responsible global citizens who make a positive impact on the world.

Academic excellence forms the cornerstone of our educational philosophy. Our rigorous curriculum, combined with innovative teaching methods, encourages critical thinking, creativity, and problem-solving skills. We empower our pupils to explore their passions and unlock their full potential, helping them excel academically and beyond.

Beyond the classroom, our extensive co-curricular activities provide opportunities for pupils to develop leadership skills, teamwork, and a healthy competitive spirit. Whether it's through participating in our renowned music and drama programmes, engaging in community service, or excelling on the sports field, our pupils learn valuable life lessons that shape their character.

Exeter School is proud of its strong sense of community. Our dedicated parents, alumni, and staff work collaboratively to create a nurturing and inspiring environment. We believe in open communication and actively involve our Exeter School community in the educational journey of our pupils.

We are committed to staying at the forefront of educational innovation and provide state-of-the-art facilities and resources for our pupils. Our passionate and experienced staff continually seek new ways to enhance the learning experience and ensure our pupils receive a world-class education.
