Our Curriculum

Our school aims to be accessible to all, regardless of background, income, ability, faith, gender or any other consideration, and to attract pupils from across the Exeter urban area.

The school offers a particularly broad and balanced curriculum in which all subjects - including intellectual, physical, and practical skills - are taught across the entire age range in ways appropriate to the children’s age.

The school is a free, non-denominational school for the city of Exeter and strives to balance the creative, the active and the academic.

Our mission is to develop children to their fullest potential as motivated, confident, self-reliant and responsible individuals with a life-long love of learning and a strong sense of the contribution they can make to society.
