Image of Stover School, South Devon Stover School:
Stover is one of south-west England's leading independent day and boarding schools for girls and boys aged 3 to 18 years. We are situated between Plymouth and Exeter in South Devon. Set in 60 acres of beautiful grounds close to Dartmoor in Stover, Newton Abbot, Stover enjoys the benefit of a rural location but has the advantage of an excellent transportation network by road, rail and air. Children at Stover are happy; they thrive and flourish. Newton Abbot is located approximately 76 miles from Bournemouth and 119 miles from Portsmouth. Torquay is only a 20 minute drive.

Our aim is to provide a happy and nurturing environment enabling pupils to acquire excellent qualifications. Stover School is a non-selective school and welcomes pupils of all abilities. We recognise that some pupils may need particular support in order to make the most of the opportunities offered by the school because of difficulties with learning and/or disabilities. We are proud of our record of achieving outstanding results at GCSE and A-Level, which are a testament to the hard work of the pupils and staff.

Cardiff International Aiport is situated 75 km to the north. It provides daily flights to many international destinations including Spain and the Netherlands. There are also domestic flights to London and Edinburgh.

Boarding for students aged 7-18:
Stover has a happy boarding community in which boarders can enjoy life in a relaxed, shared environment. Boarders live in Mansion House or Park House. Younger pupils live in dormitories where they develop friendships that can last a lifetime. Single or double study bedrooms are available for our Sixth Formers. Each House has a Common Room in which the girls can relax together in comfortable surroundings.

Flexible Boarding:
Flexible boarding is available to all our day girls either regularly, for one or two nights per week or as a one off sleep-over, or perhaps more if parents are away.

Boys Boarding:
Boys are placed with local English host families, ensuring that our pupils have someone close at hand to care for them.
