Blundell's Prep School 

Blundell’s Preparatory School, formerly St Aubyn’s School, is situated on a wonderfully extensive site in beautiful Devon countryside on the outskirts of Tiverton, within easy access to the M5 and North Devon Link road. It is administered under the auspices of the Blundell’s Charitable Trust. Blundell's Prep is an independent school for children aged two to eleven.

The school prepares children for a variety of senior schools, although the majority of the children feed through to the Senior School. Please call in to see us and have a look around. We will be only too willing to show you the range of opportunities we have on offer.


At Blundell’s Prep we aim to enable each child to develop his or her all-round potential by providing opportunities for the development of the whole child. As well as the full range of academic subjects, we offer experience and teaching in things practical, artistic and physical giving each child a balanced educational diet.

In the Prep School, age 7-11, children are increasingly taught by subject specialists using, where appropriate, specialist facilities. The curriculum for all includes: English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Religious Studies, French, Design Technology, Food Technology, Information and Communication Technology, Drama, Music, PE and Games.

A year 5 Drama activity group performed the Adventures of Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson.
There was plenty of swash-buckling and gruff ooh-aahs! A jolly good time was had by all!

Curriculum guides give a breakdown of what is taught in each subject in each year. These guides are reviewed annually and are modified with regard to ongoing pupil assessment and changes to the National Curriculum. Please see the academic subject pages for their respective curriculum guides.


Activities include: Cubs and Brownies, Ballet, Woodwork, Speech and Drama, Computer Club, Chess Club and Orienteering. The Pre-Prep has its own Busy Bees and Otters Clubs.

Blundell's Prep runs a diverse range of extra-curricular activities which aim to engage the children on a more 'fun' level than normal academic studies or games.

Blundell’s Pre-Prep provides a caring stimulating environment for children aged from rising three to seven years.

The Pre-Prep Department is housed in a new purpose built building just a stones throw away from the Prep School. Each classroom is bright and airy with eight of the ten classrooms having immediate access to outside play facilities. As well as having its own library and two spacious halls, ICT features strongly in the Department with a range of PC’s, laptop computers and interactive whiteboards which enhance the learning opportunities for every child.

The children enjoy the use of the three age appropriate spacious playgrounds and playing fields with views to wide open countryside beyond. Learning does not stop at the classroom door but extends into 20 acres of school grounds complete with wildlife area and pond.

At Blundell’s Pre-Prep we believe that every child is unique, and, given our small classes with high adult: pupil ratios, each will be helped to develop his/her own talents through gentle encouragement and positive praise.

Our highly qualified Early Years staff, overseen by the Head of Pre-Prep, offer a carefully balanced curriculum, enabling each child to achieve good standards of literacy and numeracy as well as developing a desire to learn. We recognise that the firm foundations established in the early years are crucial to the achievement of the academic success in the future.

Where a child is identified as needing additional support in an area of learning, this will where possible be provided by the Class Teacher or Teaching Assistant in full consultation with the Learning Support Co-ordinator. Similarly a child who displays a particular talent in a given area will have their learning extended.

In addition to the more academic studies, children are also taught music, games, physical education, drama, dance and art. Extra-curricular activities include ballet, judo, Art Club, French Club, Busy Bees and Otters. There is also a very popular After School Club which enables children to stay on after school from 3.45pm until 5.40pm. Children staying to After School Club are given tea and participate in a range of activities in a relaxed environment.
