Mount Kelly

Co-educational Senior and Prep School
"At Mount Kelly we have high expectations of our pupils. We encourage them to believe in themselves, to be inquisitive and resilient and to show ambition both in and out of the classroom.” Mark Semmence, Head Master and Principal, The Mount Kelly Foundation

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. The School, for girls and boys aged between 3 and 18, offers both day and full boarding provision and currently has 570 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 joins one of the School’s four Houses, serving as a boarder’s ‘home from home’ and a day pupil’s working base. 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.” Good Schools Guide 2015

 “There is a true family at Mount Kelly. My son has such a wonderful network of staff and friends who support him academically and generally at the school.”
