Shebbear College is an independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 4 to 18, located in rural North Devon, UK.

Head's Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to Shebbear College. We are a thriving boarding and day school for boys and girls aged 2 to 18. Life at Shebbear is busy, filled with academic purpose, cocurricular activity, creative discovery and outdoor adventure. As Head and as a parent in our wonderful school and community, I very much look forward to meeting you in person.


Our 85-acre campus is situated in the beautiful Devon countryside, close to Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks and the fantastic surfing beaches of the North Cornwall coast. With five sports fields, a nature trail and an outdoor classroom, we try to take our learning outdoors as much as possible and provide a rich outdoor education programme. We want our pupils to see the world around them, to appreciate nature, blue skies and open fields. We want them to seize opportunities, be positive and never stop learning!

Our individual approach – our ability and passion to understand each pupil as an individual, to see their potential and to ignite their spark – is what makes us special and stands us apart from other schools. At Shebbear College, thanks to our smaller size and our dedicated staff, we really are able to provide a tailored education. We find out what makes each child tick and we develop new and innovative ways of teaching to suit them as individuals, so that they can achieve their best in every aspect of their education.
