Mount Kelly (Prep)

Mount Kelly (Prep), Mount Tavy Road, Tavistock PL19 9JL, UK – 01822 612244

This school has a well deserved reputation for an excellent education from Kindergarten to Year 8. The school day runs from 8.10 until 16.30 with loads of after school clubs which run through to 1715. The grounds are simply stunning. Class sizes are never more than 20 and the care for students is excellent. Sport facilities are superb and since the merger with the senior school the College has gone from strength to strength.

An amazing school

Whitchurch Community Primary School

School Rd, Tavistock PL19 9SR, UK – 01822 616202

I have two children at this school - I have always found the staff and head approachable and have always done there best to deal with any queries or concerns. Both my children are very happy at the school. I appreciate that at times issues arise and the outcome does not always meet the parents expectations but that does not make it a bad school. The children generally leave Whitchurch, happy, well rounded and with above average grades. The opportunities within Whitchurch make them confident children with good self-esteem. There are many opportunies included sports, drama, cookery clubs, community events and a major asset to the school the fantastic music teacher. I feel all schools have negatives but without a shawdow of a doubt Whitchurch Primary is a positive for the local community of Tavistock. Keep up the good work.

What a great school. My two kids attended this school and we couldn't have been happier with it. They always loved the place, felt part of the community, and they emerged well balanced, happy kids with a solid educational foundation. The negative review from fernie just doesn't sit with my experience. I certainly didn't see the head and the governors wandering around the playground looking for parents to ostracise. We paid for extra tuition, but only for the 11 plus exam and not cos the school was failing to deliver its core teaching. Our kids entered secondary school well prepared and absolutely up to speed with their contemporaries. I would recommend this school to anyone, and frequently do. Just go and have a look, and then find better if you can!

Mount Kelly (College)

Parkwood Rd, Tavistock PL19 0HZ, UK – 01822 813100

An excellent school in wonderful surroundings. The range of activities available yo students is what makes this school so special. Now with a 50 metre swimming pool and incredible sports facilities. The school merged with Mount House Prep school to become Mount Kelly formerly known as Kelly College. I don't think there are more beautiful school settings than the two sites both also located on the the edge of Dartmoor. Apparently the school was a close second for the Harry Potter film setting. Very good value for what is an outstanding school.
