Shebbear College is an independent UK school offering co-educational day and boarding education for boys and girls aged 3 to 18, located in rural North Devon, England. The school draws upon over a century and a half of history in shaping its values and outlook.
Set in a beautiful rural environment, the College is unique among independent schools in Devon and has a strong sense of community centred upon Christian teaching, honouring its illustrious past whilst having its sights set firmly on the future, embracing innovations in thought, technology and education.
Our aim is to educate each pupil to achieve his or her potential by encouraging the highest possible standards of attainment and behaviour through a balanced, flexible and challenging curriculum.
By providing a supportive and nurturing environment, Shebbear develops a pupil’s sense of self worth, enthusiasm for learning and optimism for the future. We foster responsibility, tolerance, commitment and respect, both for the individual and for society.
Set in a wonderful rural environment, the college has a unique sense of community. Not far from Exeter City, Okehampton and Bideford, Shebbear College is easily accessible and offers transport assistance to and from main UK airports for our international pupils.
We believe traditional values strengthen an individual’s self-discipline and character providing an awareness of the world and others, equipping young people for their lives beyond Shebbear.
Shebbear College seeks to prepare all its pupils for adult life by challenging and expanding young minds and in teaching both personal and social responsibility.
We take great pride not only in our pupils’ academic successes but also in the well-rounded, caring and well-motivated young adults who have a clear knowledge of right and wrong and who are comfortable and confident in their surroundings.
We invite you to come and see for yourself what makes Shebbear College so special. We will be delighted to show you around.
