Once an Exonian, always an Exonian

Our alumni are important members of the school community. We value your life-long connection to the school, and foster this relationship by following your progress, inviting you to events, keeping you updated with school and alumni news, and supporting you when we can.

All former pupils of Exeter School, including those who joined us from other schools to study A Level subjects, are members of the Exeter School alumni community. As are former teachers and members of staff, as well as former parents who want to stay in touch with the school.

The Alumni and Development office exists to connect you to the school in ways that are meaningful and mutually beneficial. We run a wide range of events, share regular communications and publications, and enable you to give your time and expertise to our pupils via our volunteering programme. We can help you reconnect with former classmates and teachers, explore the school archives, and share your news. And, of course, alumni are always welcome to come back and visit the school by arrangement.

An important part of our work involves giving you the opportunity to transform young lives through our bursary programme. Bursaries are means-tested financial awards. They enable bright and talented pupils, whose families would not ordinarily have the financial means to send them to the school, to access an Exeter School education. The school has ambitious aims to expand our bursary provision. At the moment 1% of pupils are here benefiting from an entirely free place, and there is more we want to do. We are very grateful to all those who already support us – thank you.

Once an Exonian, always an Exonian.

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.
