Mount Kelly, set on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, combines academic excellence, an outstanding range of opportunities beyond the classroom and exceptional pastoral care.

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.

Preparing our pupils to take their places in a challenging and rapidly evolving world with confidence and courage and gifting them the skills, in the words of John Donne, to be ‘involved in Mankind’, is our duty and should be that of all places of learning.

I hope this website gives you a glimpse of what Mount Kelly has to offer – but it can only be a foretaste. We would be delighted to arrange a visit so that you can see the way we work, and experience the atmosphere and spirit of Mount Kelly for yourself.
