Working at Exeter School

Exeter School, with a history spanning nearly four centuries, stands as a vibrant, forward-thinking independent school dedicated to providing the highest quality education. Nestled in the heart of Exeter, our picturesque 25-acre main campus blends centuries-old architecture with modern additions.

Our facilities include two well-appointed libraries, a drama studio, arts studios, a purpose-built music school, chapel, and gallery. The school boasts a range of top-tier ICT resources, dedicated rooms in the senior school, custom suites for music, design technology, and sixth form study, as well as a specialised suite in the junior school. Complementing our extensive playing fields are a 3G astroturf arena, a 25m indoor swimming pool, sports hall, fitness suite, studio area, climbing wall, indoor shooting range, squash courts, and an all-weather court. We maintain a rigorous program of ongoing refurbishment and upgrades for all classroom facilities.

At Exeter School, we prioritize the growth, welfare, and wellbeing of our valued staff. We embrace diversity, drawing on a wide range of skills, qualifications, roles, and responsibilities across our teaching and non-teaching teams.

Possible loss of functionality to our portals

Please note that there is a widespread technical issue with CrowdStrike’s software which has led to a global outage affecting various sectors, including planes, railways, and iSAMS servers and communications. This may mean that parents of the school might not be able to use their parent portal currently and some other parts of our site might not work as well as they normally do.

We urge you to take a well-earned break and check back in on Monday when hopefully things will be working again.
