Location

Blundell’s Preparatory School enjoys its own separate ten-acre site on the Blundell’s campus, on the outskirts of the market town of Tiverton.

The M5 Motorway and Tiverton Parkway Station (on the Paddington Mainline) are just ten minutes away, yet the School is bordered by fields and has views of the Devon Hills. Tiverton has excellent road links with both North and South Devon, and Taunton and Exeter are both less than half an hour away.

As a Day School, many of our families live close by in surrounding villages or within Tiverton itself. Some of our children travel in from slightly further afield and we have a fleet of school buses which operate throughout the region. Please go to the ‘Information – Bus service’ page to find out more.
