Welcome to Shebbear College!

We are a thriving day and boarding school for girls and boys aged 2 to 18, located in a picturesque area of Devon between Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks. Our beautiful 85-acre campus, outstanding facilities, small class sizes and friendly, happy community offer the perfect environment for every single girl and boy to flourish.

At Shebbear we offer a broad, all-round education for all of our pupils from Pre-School through to Sixth Form, focusing on each child as an individual and developing their strengths and talents. We are so much more than a school. We are a community where every pupil is nurtured, respected and encouraged to maximise their potential, embrace every opportunity and be themselves every single day.

Our Admissions Department is open and we are continuing to accept enquiries and registrations. We are now able to arrange a socially distanced tour of the campus or alternatively we can arrange online meetings with our Head, Mrs Kirby or Head of Prep, Mr Foale.

Although we are unable to offer Taster Days at this time, your son or daughter is also very welcome to join in with some of our virtual lessons. We have received extremely positive feedback on our remote learning programme and we hope that this will give your child a small taste of life at Shebbear until we can see you in person!

Shebbear College is a Boarding Schools’ Association (BSA) member school and we have adopted the BSA COVID-SAFE Charter. This is a voluntary code to which schools can adhere and aims to give confidence to everyone that we are following all appropriate measures in order to provide a safe environment for pupils.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are considering Shebbear College for your son or daughter. You can email or telephone 01409 282000, and we will be happy to answer any questions you have. 

We look forward to hearing from you!
