Welcome from the Head

From the moment you walk into the school you will find a tangible sense of community and a passionate approach towards the development of every child in our care.

I believe that we are a school which embraces the traditional values of family life along with a strong academic ethos. Whilst academic pursuits are a critical part of each child’s school life, we recognise that growing up is much more than just time spent in the classroom. At Blundell’s Prep the message to the children is clear. We want you to try everything, to find your passion and to become the very best person that you can be. You will find inspiration in the classroom, in the drama studio and on the games field. You will find it in Music, in Art and in the wonderful friendships that you will make.

We want every child to feel that they belong here and the school’s motto ‘Non Sibi’ encourages values of courtesy, empathy and selflessness which combine to create a very special atmosphere.

From rising 3 years old, your children will discover the joy of exploration within a superbly equipped Nursery. As they move through the school they become more independent and venture out into the beautiful grounds set amongst idyllic Devon countryside. They will enjoy time in our own woodland as well as our outdoor classroom, The Hub, helping them develop as individuals. With dedicated staff and high quality resources available to support your child they will grow and develop into young people with a thirst for learning and the confidence to face the challenges of the next stage of their education.

I would be delighted to take you on a tour so that you can experience first-hand the many qualities of this remarkable school. I look forward to meeting you soon.

If you would like to visit the School please contact the School Office on 01884 252393 and we will be delighted to arrange an appointment for you.
