Stover School provides education which nurtures, celebrates, challenges and inspires each pupil. Our holistic approach combines a progressive research based curriculum, with a resilient moral code based on sound family and Christian principles.
The Early Years Foundation Stage (Nursery - Foundation 1 and Reception Class - Foundation 2) is for children aged three to five years old and is the first stage of their education.
Stover's Preparatory School is located in the Clock House. Built in 1843, it is a delightful building that offers children a safe and secure environment to begin their school life and its proximity to the Senior School gives them access to all the facilities that the whole school offers.
Stover is a small school and it is in these critical years that this works to our advantage. With class sizes between 15 and 20, they are able to get to know each pupil and they have the time to spend with them to unlock the key to their success.
The broad A Level curriculum, delivered by our passionate teaching cohort, offers pupils the opportunity to grow as independent learners exceed their expectations.
Stover's boarding houses provide a safe and caring community where boys and girls are valued as individuals but have the opportunity to make friends with children from a range of backgrounds and nationalities.
During the lighter evenings, boarders can take advantage of the wonderful grounds for sport and recreation. Barbecues and picnics are a feature of life at Stover in the warmer months. Evening activities include sport, art, dance, craft, textiles, cookery and a DVD night.
Weekends are a time to relax after a busy week of work. They plan a program of activities to explore the beautiful Devon countryside, as well as trips to the theatre and cinema, to the zoo, and shopping in Exeter and Plymouth. Sometimes they go further afield to explore the cultural opportunities in the South West. Weekends are also a time for boarders to continue their studies, using the library and the Sixth Form Centre.
It nurtures students in a strong spirit of solidarity and loyalty and encourages all pupils to engage with those outside their year group through its vertical system; it gives pupils a sense of belonging regardless of age and ability and it enables pupils to make a contribution, no matter how small, to a greater whole.
Through the House system pupils are actively encouraged to participate in a wide range of organized, keenly contested, inter-house activities.
These activities range from music to football, from debating to netball and from house science to climbing.
The full program of events includes something for everyone and the award of an overall House Trophy ensures that every pupil’s contribution is important and valued.
Pupils in different age groups are able to develop their leadership, motivational and organizational skills through their roles within the House as Heads of House and House Prefects.
Stover School is a member of a number of national, regional and international organizations that allow the high educational standards they have set to be maintained.
