Blundell’s life

Devon has long-been one of England’s most popular places to live, and it is also a great place to go to school. At a time when there is, rightly, an ever-growing focus on adolescent mental health and wellbeing, the advantage of our location is self-evident.

Devonians are known for their warmth, and this is reflected in the strength of the relationships we see within the school. This is fostered by the Boarding Houses, central to the lives of our pupils. We are grateful for our safe, secure campus, set on the edge of the market town of Tiverton, surrounded by gentle hills and green space.

We count ourselves very lucky here at Blundell’s to be so close to a huge range of sought-after locations and exciting experiences for our pupils; opportunities to camp, sail, surf, and hike are right on our doorstep, as are towns and cities like Taunton and Exeter.

Outdoor activities are a key element of the Blundell’s experience, not just because the pupils love them (which they do), but because they help them to develop values such as resilience and resourcefulness and, more simply, to learn the joy of discovery. Our extensive Blundell’s garden develops pupils’ horticultural skills and provides a space for them to be with friends and connect with nature.

A final advantage of being based in Devon is that we are able to attract a truly outstanding staff body. Our inspirational teachers are diverse, talented and committed. They focus not only on learning, but also on the process of learning, both in and out of the classroom. As a result, we consistently rank among the top schools in the country for value-added data, and regularly achieve national success in academics, sport, music, and drama. We are committed to our ambition to be more thoughtful in understanding our pupils, and more innovative in developing their potential, than any other school in the country.
