Stover School enjoys a position as one of the south west’s leading independent schools, and numerous accolades demonstrate its success.

i25 Excellence

Stover School was delighted to announce that our Headmaster, Mr Richard Notman was nominated for the prestigious Independent Insight i25 Award. The national i25 Awards celebrates 25 individuals who are making a remarkable contribution to independent schools and independent education.

The judges were looking for outstanding examples of innovation or influence made by individuals in the independent sector. Mr Richard Notman has been nominated for introducing the hugely successful Research Based Learning curriculum to Stover School, Newton Abbot. Research Based Learning is a philosophy that transcends the whole curriculum at Stover School, being employed from the Nursery to the Sixth Form. It defines an approach in which teachers encourage pupils to be researchers, discoverers and creators of their own and others learning, within a lesson or series of lessons, which encapsulate a learning aim or objective.
