Head of Preparatory School’s Welcome

Nestled between the wild rugged landscape of Dartmoor National Park and the exquisite beauty of the South Devon coastline lies Stover Preparatory School.                                                            

Stover Prep School is an exciting, stimulating place to be! As you drive up our   tree   lined drive into our 65 acre site and enter Clockhouse, the heart of the Prep   and   Nursery School, you will find a school humming with life as happy children and   teache go about their busy day. Everyone appreciates our fabulous location and works   together with enormous vigour to create a wonderful learning environment.

Children’s first experiences at school have a significant impact on their future   success, not only in terms of academic achievement but, most importantly, on their   self-esteem and attitude towards learning. These essential life skills begin to develop   at a very young age. As children begin their educational journey, it is important that   they feel secure in their setting and inspired by the teaching they receive. Now is the   time to capture and nurture the wonder of learning.

Our child-centred approach ensures that every individual is nurtured and encouraged to achieve their best. Pupils in our care benefit from small class sizes under the guidance of experienced, dedicated teachers. Our site provides opportunities for children to grow and learn in countless ways. 

It is wonderful to see even our youngest pupils enjoying nature walks in our very own ‘jungle’; picking apples in our orchard; training on the school’s sports fields and tennis courts, imaginatively playing on the pirate ship in our playground and performing for parents in our large, multi-purpose hall. Our excellent facilities, combined with a supportive family atmosphere and a commitment to the partnership between home and school, make Stover Prep School a very special place for learning.

If you would like to find out more about the excellent opportunities Stover Nursery and Preparatory School can offer your child, please come and visit us. You will find a warm, enthusiastic welcome awaiting your family where we really do ‘Plant the Seeds for Success.’
