What the school says...

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 a full range of boarding provision and currently has 550 pupils.
Children at Mount Kelly are nurtured, guided and inspired to develop their own skills and interests. Each pupil joins one of the School’s Houses, serving as a boarder’s ‘home from home’ and a day pupil’s working base. Boarders comprise approximately 50% of the College’s pupils and are fully integrated with the day pupil body. Pupils enjoy small class sizes offering exceptional levels of individual focus. Each pupil is cared for by a Housemaster or Housemistress and assigned a dedicated tutor who oversees their academic, pastoral and co-curricular progress. This comprehensive tutoring system produces happy pupils who are confident, well-rounded and ambitious.
Mount Kelly offers a high standard of academic schooling including a proven track record of 100% A-level pass rates, 70% awarded at A* – B and 85% gaining places at their top choices of universities. Mount Kelly also has an excellent reputation for 100% Common Entrance success and top Scholarships to a range of leading national schools.
The School is well known for its strong commitment to co-curricular activities and the majority of pupils are involved with at least one of the following: the Combined Cadet Force, Duke of Edinburgh Awards, the Devizes to Westminster Canoe Marathon or the Ten Tors Challenge. The Saturday School Programme, optional for all day pupils, gives the children the opportunity to explore a wide range of interests with activities from kayaking to cookery. In addition the academic staff, in collaboration with well-resourced on-site Adventure Centre, runs the innovative Learning Outside the Classroom Programme utilising activities from coasteering to creative writing ‘on location’. Mount Kelly is well known for its world class coaching facility for swimming and an elite training programme which is fully integrated within the School. Mount Kelly has produced competitors at the last five Olympic and Paralympic games.
