About Blundells School
Blundell’s is a mixed, selective, Church of England all-through school with sixth form situated in Tiverton, Devon. It is an independent school and charitable trust with 600 day and boarding students.
The school was made in the will of cloth merchant Peter Blundell. It was founded as a boys-only institution in 1604, almost three centuries before it moved to its current Tiverton site in 1882. Girls were first admitted in 1993. The prep school was acquired in 2006, adjacent to the main school. Today, Blundell’s has a pre-school, primary and secondary with sixth-form college, catering for young people aged 2 and a half to 18.
