Co-educational UK Boarding School in Devon
Stover School is a leading independent co-educational day and boarding school for pupils aged 3 – 18. It is set in 64 acres of beautiful and historical grounds in the heart of Devon’s glorious countryside between the foothills of Dartmoor and the South West Coastline.
Founded in 1932 Stover School aims to provide a high quality education in accordance to Christian principles, enabling pupils to acquire the qualifications, confidence and skills needed to achieve their aspirations.
Stover School recently received an overwhelmingly positive inspection report from the Independent Schools Inspectorate, in which, Stover School was deemed to ‘very successfully fulfil its aim of providing a high quality education’.
The school is proud to have been judged as ‘Excellent’ in; teaching, pastoral care, welfare, health and safety, quality of leadership and management and governance.
Stover School is a unique and very special place; a school which delivers cutting edge education while retaining a healthy focus on traditional Christian morals, values and manners. Happy children are at the very centre of our ethos, reflecting our robust system of pastoral care. Children who feel safe, valued, respected and who trust those around them are free to focus on learning to their maximum potential.
From September we launched a Research Based Learning Curriculum across the entire school, all of our pupils will benefit from the “bring your own” ICT infrastructure that will best model ICT usage in the work-place and the first vegetable beds and animals will arrive onto the site to kick start our Stover School Farm.
Throughout the school we offer a broad and balanced curriculum that recognises natural talents and nurtures the individual. Our dedicated team of teaching and pastoral care staff provide encouragement, motivation and support to enable pupils to achieve their aspirations academically and in the expressive arts, music, drama and sport. Our extra-curricular activities and enrichment programmes have a wide range of activities for everyone to enjoy providing opportunities to develop new skills and challenges.
As a relatively small school we know every pupil very well. Our ethos is centred on the care and support of our pupils by providing a safe and friendly learning environment that builds confidence and independence. With a strong house system this provides a framework for pupils to develop a sense of collectiveness within a supportive environment. Pupils learn respect for themselves and others through our teaching of moral values and good standards of behaviour.
Our aim is that every child who comes into the school will enjoy their experience at Stover. They will look back on their school days with affection; having achieved the best they are capable of, explored different opportunities and challenges with confidence and enthusiasm, ready to leave Stover equipped with the qualifications and skills required for life as an adult.
