Open Events & Visits
The best way to discover more about Shebbear College is to come and see us.
We hold a series of Open Events every year and you are also encouraged to come on an individual visit, which includes a tour of the school and a meeting with our Head, Mr Jenkins (if you are looking at the Senior School or Sixth Form), or our Head of the Prep School, Mr Foale (if you are looking at the Pre-Prep or Prep School).
Look around the school virtually
You can take a look around our school virtually through our Virtual Tour.
Whole School Open Morning
We hold Whole School Open Mornings in the autumn and spring. Our next event will be in Spring 2024 (date TBC). You will be taken on a tour of the school and will be able to meet our pupils and teachers.
Sixth Form Open Evening & Subject Fair
We hold a Sixth Form Subject Fair each Autumn. You will have the opportunity to find out more about the A-level and BTEC subjects on offer, as well as the wide range of other opportunities available in our Sixth Form, including our Sports Exchange Programme, Camps International Expedition and Co-Curricular opportunities, meet the teachers and chat to our Sixth Formers. Our next subject fair will be in autumn 2024 (date TBC)
Prospective pupils of all ages are asked to come on at least one Taster Day before they join us, which enables them to experience school life, meet teachers and fellow pupils and get a feel for the school. Children are also welcome to stay overnight if they would like to experience our boarding facilities. During the Taster Day our teachers will be able to informally observe your child in order to make sure that our school would be a good fit for them and that they would be happy here.
Group Taster Days
We also hold a group Form 1 Taster Day each November where all Year 6 pupils can spend a day as a Senior School student, and 'A Day in the Life of a Sixth Former' which is a chance for Year 11 pupils to experience a day as a Shebbear Sixth Former. Our next event is the 'Day in the Life of a Sixth Former' on Tuesday 9th January.
