Cambian Devon School is an independent, DfE-registered, co-educational day school, providing specialist education for up to 30 students, aged 7-18 years.


The School is non-denominational and has a secular ethos, but respects the cultural needs and religious beliefs of all. The School specialises in education students with SEMH through flexible learning programmes, delivered using high-quality teaching and exceptional pastoral care. We achieve this by forming particularly strong relationships between teachers and students.


Behavioural management strategies are applied consistently and sensitively, ensuring that students are clear about boundaries and expectations, so that behaviour in classes contributes to good academic progress. We also place emphasis on preparation for adult life, particularly through the personal, social, citizenship and health (PSCH) curriculum.


Our approach is to inspire and engage our learners through a wide range of positive learning experiences. We strongly believe that all students can achieve their personal best with the right guidance, encouragement and support.
