Everyone who visits Stover - pupils, parents, staff and visitors - recognise that this is a very special place. Perhaps it is our location, in the foothills of Dartmoor yet in the heart of Devon’s glorious countryside, just a few miles from the sea, that makes Stover unique. We are a close and warm community, all working towards one goal – the education of children, from the early years, right through until they become young adults.
Excellence in teaching and nurturing of pupils lie at the heart of all we do at Stover. These dual objectives drive our decisions and shape our priorities. By teaching I include, along with our excellent academic results that we continually achieve year after year, our teaching of important life skills such as self-confidence, self-esteem, respect for others and care for the community.
As a Christian school, we teach children about the value of moral standards and good standards of behaviour. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum that recognises natural talents and nurtures the individual. As a relatively small school we know every pupil very well; their needs, how they learn, and these strong relationships, which develop as they grow, are the foundations for their achievements at Stover and beyond.
