Our Vision and Values at West Exe School

West Exe School is a vibrant community united in its commitment to creating opportunities for students and staff to achieve success.


We believe in a supportive, positive and committed community that enables all to flourish and achieve their best. We believe that students achieve excellent outcomes as a result of five years at a school where they are happy and engaged at all times; where they are challenged from day one and are consistently supported to be the best they can be. 


We are a School with very high expectations of and for our students; only their best is good enough.  We provide students with opportunities to shine, through excellent teaching and innovative practice, a vibrant and rich extracurricular provision and a curriculum that challenges and inspires from the start of year 7 and is increasingly personalised as students move up through the School.  


There are so many wonderful successes at this School, we have the whole School musical; Ten Tors and DofE; a wide variety of sports clubs including climbing, netball, cricket, football, tennis, rounders and basketball; opportunities to take part in the UK Maths Challenge; and the possibility to hone debating skills with the Model United Nations team, to name only a few of the enrichment activities on offer.  

We are really proud our students attain good outcomes which enable them to move on to the next steps of their education. Students this year successfully moved on to Exeter College, Exeter Maths School, Exeter College – Reach academy and a variety of high quality apprenticeships. We believe in ensuring students achieve a good range of qualifications but also develop the skills to use these to move on successfully to a destination of their choice.
