School Life

Exeter School is a dynamic and vibrant educational institution encompassing Exeter Pre-Prep, Exeter Junior School, and Exeter School. It provides exceptional opportunities for personal growth and development during the crucial formative years from 3 to 18.

Upon entering our school for the first time, visitors are immediately greeted by the sight of cheerful children engaged in their studies and various activities, surrounded by friends, classmates, and dedicated teachers. Our environment encourages academic excellence and cultural enrichment, both within the classroom through our experienced educators and beyond the curriculum via an extensive schedule of trips, talks, events, and competitions. Here, pupils embark on a journey of self-discovery, gaining insight into their own interests and capabilities, fostering a love for learning.

Central to our philosophy is the belief that active engagement lies at the core of effective education. We recognize that pupils thrive when they are challenged and actively involved in their learning journey. Exeter School provides abundant opportunities for pupils to explore their passions and interests. Learning extends far beyond the confines of the classroom, encouraging pupils to explore new horizons on the sports field, in the dance studio, through music, on the stage, in the laboratory, as part of the Combined Cadet Force (CCF), or by participating in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme (DofE), and beyond.

At Exeter School, we take immense pride in our nurturing and caring environment, characterised by a sense of purpose and tranquility. We are committed to valuing and holistically nurturing our pupils.

While our outstanding examination results speak to our academic achievements, they only reveal half of the story. Our ultimate goal is to instill in our pupils a deep sense of self-awareness, guiding them to reflect on their own values, well-being, and attitudes towards others.
