Welcome to West Exe School

Welcome to our website. We very much hope that you find it both interesting and informative. This site has been designed to give a wide range of information about the activities and work of the school.

Rated Good by Ofsted in January 2014, West Exe School is vibrant and innovative where we promote ‘Excellence for All, in all that WE do’ and believe in ‘Bringing Learning to Life’.

We are an 11-16 edge of city comprehensive housed in modern, purpose-built accommodation; a bright and stimulating place for students to learn and for staff to work.

We aim to provide a learning environment in which all students feel safe, valued and known, where they can develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes to become successful learners, confident young people and responsible global citizens. We are proud of both the academic success and personal development of our students.

Creative, active lessons and consistently high expectations ensure that students grow in confidence and make very good progress. This enables them to move onto college, apprenticeships, university or work as well-rounded, aspirational young people.
