Exeter School

Educating over 940 pupils from 7 to 18, Exeter School is the leading coeducational school in the south west. Founded in 1633, the school occupies a 25 acre site, located within a mile of the city centre, where it has been since 1880. The school blends high academic standards with excellent pastoral care and an outstanding co-curricular programme. There is no typical Exeter School boy or girl: we celebrate the fact that our children's characters, talents and interests span a wide range.
