Mount Kelly

Mount Kelly, set on the edge of Dartmoor National Park between Exeter and Plymouth, combines academic excellence with an outstanding range of learning opportunities outside the classroom and exceptional pastoral care.

“Our education stands apart in the values and attitudes of its young men and women. Compassion, tolerance, kindness, integrity and a generosity of Spirit underpin a determined dedication to academic excellence.” Guy Ayling, Head Master

The School, for girls and boys aged between 3 and 18, offers both day and full boarding provision and currently has 600 pupils. Children at Mount Kelly are nurtured, guided and inspired to develop their own skills and interests in small classes that offer an exceptional degree of individual focus. Each pupil is cared for by a Housemaster or mistress and assigned a dedicated tutor who oversees their academic, pastoral and co-curricular progress. The School’s comprehensive tutoring system produces happy pupils who are confident, well-rounded and ambitious.

The School offers minibus transfer services and is well connected to major cities and transport hubs including London, Heathrow.


“An inspirational learning environment.”
