A Blundell's Education

Blundell’s Senior School begins in Year 7 and goes through to the end of Year 13

A Blundell’s education is broad and far-reaching. The foundation of success in the classroom or on the sports field lies in a combination of hard work and excellent teaching and coaching. Culturally, hard work is admired, and pupils recognise the dividends paid by diligence and effort. We are blessed with a passionate and innovative staff body and teaching, according to independent inspections, has been recognised as being excellent.

We believe in nurturing curiosity and courage to embrace whatever opportunities and challenges come our way. At Blundell’s we instil in pupils a sense of anticipation and a readiness to say yes when possibilities present themselves.

The skills that are most likely to be in greatest demand in the workplace in the coming years are those associated with resourcefulness, adaptability, and courage. At Blundell’s we create opportunities for pupils to test themselves and to hone those skills that will prepare them for a life beyond school. The pioneering and adventurous spirit is one of which we are proud, whether it is undertaking independent research for an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), representing the school on the sports field, composing a piece of music, or yomping across Dartmoor.

One of the most important tasks of growing up is coming to terms with who we are. Blundell’s is a safe environment for pupils to explore different facets of themselves, to work out their strengths and weaknesses, to grow familiar with their personality and to develop their character. Not only do we want pupils to leave Blundell’s with a healthy sense of themselves but also to be young adults who are comfortable in their own skin.

A Blundell’s education prepares pupils for a life in which they have the ability and the confidence to make a meaningful contribution to society. Instilling in pupils a strong social conscience and an appreciation of the opportunities they have at school matters a great deal to us. Woven into our day-to-day life is the chance to contribute, in school or in the wider community. This includes encouraging all pupils to learn about leadership and service, and what these entail.
