Head Master’s Welcome

Independent Boarding and Day School

The Mount Kelly education stands apart in the values and attitudes of its young men and women. Compassion, tolerance, kindness, integrity, generosity of spirit and a commitment to service underpin a determined dedication to academic excellence.

Mount Kelleians are nurtured by a sensitive rigour in which they are expected to take the risk of being more than what they may think they are, to pick themselves up, and others too, when things do not go their way and in so doing to learn the true nature, joy and responsibility of success.

Explore Mount Kelly



We are located in Tavistock in Devon, bordering Cornwall, set in over 100 acres of countryside and woodland and on the edge of Dartmoor National Park within easy reach of the historic City of Exeter and Britain’s ocean city, Plymouth.

A countryside education at Mount Kelly allow pupils to think, grow, explore and develop in the space, beauty and richness of the natural environment, whilst still preparing them to operate successfully in the modern and more urban global environment.

We are ideally located to run extra-curricular activities such as Duke of Edinburgh expeditions, adventurous training, CCF and Forest School. Programmes such as these develop pupils self-confidence, team working skills, self-esteem and motivation to learn.
