Welcome to Exeter Cathedral School.


I’m delighted that you’re visiting our website, and hope that it will provide you with a flavour of what life is like here at Exeter Cathedral School, and with a sense of the values that underpin all that we do.

We’ve been going for over 900 years, so there is a tremendous amount of history, tradition, culture and heritage in the walls and in the blood. But there is also freshness, dynamism, modern facilities, and a real sense of pride in being an ancient foundation with traditional values and a modern approach, and a place where children can be children. 

We are large enough to have the vibrancy, energy and expertise to be able to deliver truly first-rate educational opportunities; yet small enough to know each and every one of our pupils as individuals to ensure they are nurtured, excited, appropriately-challenged, valued and happy.

Exeter Cathedral School is a terrific place and I am hugely proud to be Headmaster of this very fine school. Our website will give you a good insight into what we’re all about, but there’s no substitute of course for a visit in person. 

Do come and see us at any stage to discover what makes Exeter’s oldest school such a very special place to be: my team and I will be delighted to welcome you.
