Okehampton College
Mill Road, EX20 1PW, UK Okehampton
+44 (0)1837 650910

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. There can't be a prettier campus in England.

The buildings are a mixture of Victorian Grammar School, modern three storey central block and mixture of mid 20th century blocks. There is a new-ish theatre with specialist music rooms and practice rooms and a new Technology and ICT building offering high class teaching and learning accommodation.

All rooms are open to students at break times, plus various hard surface play areas and the playing fields when it is dry. The Learning Resource Centre and the computer rooms are available at lunchtimes and various subjects run homework or catch-up sessions. After school the Homework Zone offers students the chance to get help from staff in semi-formal sessions based in the LRC.

Sports clubs run at lunchtimes and after school. There is an orchestra, a jazz big band, a junior and senior choir and drama clubs or drama rehearsals for major productions. There really is plenty to do for students who want to get involved.

On Tuesdays and Wednesdays coaches are laid on for students who wish to stay behind after college for any of the extra-curricular activities. This means that those students living in outlying areas aren't being disadvantaged because of where they live.

During lesson times, a walk around the site reveals good order: students working with enthusiasm and independence, often outside the classroom carrying out Science experiments, on drawing exercises for Art or practising Shakespeare for English. Learning is more often than not a pleasurable activity.
