Our Secondary School Members
The College is set in the most beautiful surroundings: a large park, ringed by rising woodland and Dartmoor, bordered by the Okement River on one side and rolling farmland on the other.
The buildings are a mixture of Victorian Grammar School, modern three storey central block and mid 20th century blocks. There is a recently built theatre with specialist music and practice rooms. A modern Technology and ICT building offers high class teaching and learning accommodation.
The extensive playing fields are complemented by a large all weather-pitch with flood lighting, a Sports Hall and a gym. All of this has been added to by the building of a new Sports Centre.
