Welcome to the website of The Small School, a co-educational, independent school for 11-16 year olds, based in Hartland, Devon. 

We believe education should be based on trust and mutual respect, together with a commitment to the school community. We aim for a flexible and responsive approach to an individual’s interests, needs and abilities, thereby seeking to develop self-motivated learning.

The Small School is over thirty years old and continues to develop a human scale approach to education where small means a maximum of forty students on roll and classes are taught with no more than eight.
