Relocation to the South West

Thinking of relocating to the South West?

We are always delighted to welcome enquiries from families looking to move to the South-West, and each year many pupils join us as a result of relocation from elsewhere in the country. We understand that, for families considering such a move, finding the ‘right’ school is a crucial part of the equation, and we are proud to be able to offer an outstanding quality of education, right here in the heart of beautiful Devon.

Blundell’s is the oldest, and arguably the most prestigious independent school in Devon and Cornwall so it is easy to understand the attraction of such a move. Blundell’s is perfectly located for those looking to make this step and is very accessible:

  • Direct trains to London in under 2 hours mean that it is possible to continue working in London while living in Devon
  • 5 minutes by road to Junction 27 on the M5
  • The vibrant cultural hub of Exeter, with its theatres and art galleries is only 25 minutes away
  • We are on the doorstep of both Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks
  • A short drive from the beautiful coastline and beaches of both North and South Devon

We have extensive connections with estate agents and relocation experts, as well as removal specialists and would be very happy to discuss this further with you.

Please contact us and take the first step in your move to the South-West.

We picked Blundell’s partly for the school’s location, with the aim of heading back to the South West, but more importantly because of the school’s ethos. We were both educated in the South West, but our old schools did not seem to offer the family atmosphere, nor the seemingly relaxed way in which Blundell’s helps its pupils to thrive and obtain results. The size of Blundell’s means that it can retain an intimate and friendly atmosphere, whilst still large enough for wide interaction and competitiveness. Certainly it seemed to us that Blundell’s was a down to earth school, but with big horizons.

From the moment that we viewed, the personal touch and the importance of every pupil was clear – Blundell’s was just the right fit for our children. Our eldest two started off as full time boarders and benefited from the amazing pastoral care from the houses and house parents. The care given to the children whilst we were still living at a distance was fantastic.
