The sense of community at Shebbear College is what really sets us a part from other schools. This sense of community is perhaps best encompassed in some more words from the Headmaster...
"Imagine a College that promotes life-long learning. Imagine a College in which all its members share in and contribute to its aspirations and hopes. Imagine a College in which all are valued for who they are and taught for what they might become. Imagine a College that celebrates the success, not only for the individual, but also of the group or team. Imagine a College that builds upon the past, learns from the present, and prepares for the future. The best way to imagine the reality of our school, Shebbear College, is to experience it. I hope you will visit us and I will be delighted to welcome you." Bob Barnes 2003
Overall Shebbear's sense of community is quite unique amongst the "education factories" that many of our schools have become. It's why we like prospective parents to visit us, to get a feel for themselves.
As well as our sense of community the quality and variety of our sporting facilities are excellent and every pupil is encouraged to participate in a wide range of physical activities. Our extensive grounds and ideal location ensure that there is a wealth of opportunity to take part in not only the traditional sports of rugby, netball, football, cricket, rounders and tennis but also in pursuits such as horse riding karate, trampolining, aerobics, sailing, climbing, and canoeing, to name but a few.
