Mount Kelly, set on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, combines academic excellence, an outstanding range of opportunities beyond the classroom and exceptional pastoral care. We have high expectations and this encourages our pupils to believe in themselves, to be inquisitive, to be resilient and to show ambition both in and out of the classroom.

Our pupils feel happy and valued, which in turn gives them the confidence, social awareness and enthusiasm for life-long learning needed in a fast-changing world. Respect for tradition and an openness to innovation are valued and we encourage our pupils to work with and learn from each other, whilst also showing moral courage to stand up for what they believe.
