Exeter School aims to be as accessible as possible to boys and girls who would benefit from its academic, cultural, sporting and wide extra-curricular provision. The Governors of the school recognise that many of its parents have to make personal sacrifices to secure their children’s education. Fees are set at levels which offer excellent value for money, particularly in the light of what is on offer to all pupils at the school, and some means-tested awards are available.

Admission can take place at 7+ to the Junior School and at 11+, 13+ and 16+ to the Senior School, but applicants may also enter at other ages where places are available.
