Colyton Grammar School is a state-funded academy with a selective intake.

The Headteacher writes on the website: “Learning is at the heart of our community and through our outstanding teachers and support staff we nurture a hunger for knowledge and understanding in our learners. We are not satisfied with academic excellence alone but expect our students to make a serious contribution to the extra-curricular programme that is on offer at the school; from success on the sporting field to the delight of winning the National Bar Mock Trial competition. We place significant emphasis on developing the knowledge, skills, principles and values our students need in the 21st Century.”

The King’s School, Ottery

The King's School, Cadhay Lane, Ottery St Mary, Devon, EX11 1RA

The King’s School is an 11-18 comprehensive school with approximately 1110 students of which 185 are in the Sixth Form. It has a long and proud history that can be traced back to a fourteenth-century choir school which was replaced in 1545 by Henry VIII and renamed ‘The King’s School’.

The Headteacher writes on the website:  “Although The King’s School became an academy in 2011 we continue to work in close partnership with Devon County Council, our partner primary and secondary schools and local businesses to ensure that we offer the best educational opportunities possible to our students

We value every person at The King’s School and are driven by an underlying philosophy captured in three words - ‘Achievement for All’.  We believe that every child deserves the best possible education, regardless of background and ability, and we work with determination to ensure that we unlock their potential. Our aspiration is that the experiences of students at the school ensure that they achieve the highest possible academic and personal outcomes. The school has been graded ‘outstanding’ by OFSTED in its last two inspections, the most recent of which was in 2014, supporting the school’s belief that it is a fantastic school community to be part of.”
