Perfect for Families

Our county is a safe and secure place to bring up a family with excellent education opportunities from pre-school, through school, to higher education and further education, including the world-class Universities of Exeter and Plymouth.

Four places in the areas we cover – Colyton, Crediton, Cullompton and Shebbear – have recently been named in a list of the top 20 towns to bring up a family in England and Wales.

85% of our schools are rated ‘outstanding’ or ‘good’ by Ofsted compared to 78% nationally.
