About Shebbear College

Founded in 1841 and steeped in history, Shebbear College is a thriving day and boarding school for girls and boys aged 4 to 18. 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.

Life at Shebbear is busy, filled with academic purpose, co-curricular activity, creative discovery and outdoor adventure - we believe in a broad, extensive education where pupils excel in all areas of the curriculum. Our talented staff and ambitious pupils together form a happy, caring community that challenges, innovates and develops a love of learning.

Our smaller size means that our staff know all of our pupils individually, enabling each child to discover their own strengths and find the confidence to shine. Every pupil is different and our team of passionate and committed teachers will find their spark and discover what motivates them, meaning that each pupil can develop their potential and feel empowered to be the very best they can be - academically, socially and morally.

Shebbear pupils consistently achieve excellent A-level, BTEC and GCSE results year-on-year.  We are proud to be a non-selective school and we believe that our pupils succeed because they are happy at school. The mix of our pupil-centered curriculum, our dedicated teachers, the individual attention and the extensive range of co-curricular opportunities on offer are key factors in this success.

At Shebbear College you will find confident, courageous, compassionate, creative, curious and courteous pupils who will welcome you with open arms!

What people say about us

Since my daughter has joined Shebbear we have seen the most incredible change in her confidence. The teachers encourage the pupils to be 'themselves', give everything a go and not to worry about making mistakes. As a result she has thrown herself into every aspect of school life. She has definitely had a spark ignited in her and it is wonderful to see."

I would like to say a very big thank you to all the teachers for their huge efforts to keep school as normal as possible in these exceptionally challenging times of Covid-19. You always remain calm, kind and willing to listen, guide and help students. I truly don't know how you manage to provide differentiated activities whilst dealing with IT glitches, individual students' questions and helping children based at the college and those online. Your efforts are very much appreciated.
