Senior School

Years 7, 8 and 9 comprises of the first three year groups of Shebbear College and provides a thoughtful transition from the much smaller world of prep or primary school.

In these pivotal years of bridging the gap between primary and secondary school, Shebbear believes in offering pupils a wide range of experiences to assist their development into caring, confident and capable young people

At GCSE, Years 10 and 11 Shebbear is unusual, in that the choices available are designed to meet the pupils requirements as far as possible.

Staff liaise closely with both parents and pupils to ensure that the most suitable combinations of subjects are considered.  Normally pupils study nine subjects but many take the opportunity to follow more. Academic progress is monitored by a series of grades, reports and regular Parent-Teacher meetings.

Shebbear College is an independent UK school, a co-educational day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 3 to 18, located in rural North Devon.
