Welcome to King Edward VI Community College

These are really exciting times to be at KEVICC.

We are determined not only to be outstanding in all we do, but also to develop a unique co-operative identity that makes being part of the College an engaging and challenging experience for all our students.

This is a very special place to learn.

Our students are a fantastic mix of personalities, and we value each and every one of them. Our staff are committed to making a real difference to our students’ lives, and go that extra mile to make this happen. And our community is richly diverse, encompassing not just Totnes itself, but the wonderful countryside that surrounds it.

We are rightly pleased with, but not fulfilled by, our recent judgement as a good school. We aspire to be consistently outstanding in all that we do. We want staff and students to be creative in their approaches to learning. And we want to harness the potential of our community to develop a truly unique school infused with co-operative values that prepare children to be happy and successful adults.

This website gives you a taste of what we do. However, it is no substitute for coming to see for yourself. I look forward to meeting you and showing you what a wonderful place this is to learn.

About us


  • We believe our students must feel they belong in the College if we are to foster their growth and achievement.
  • We accept our students are children and young adults who are still developing and who will make mistakes.
  • We believe in educating the whole child, balancing high standards of academic achievement with personal development, character, and habits of learning.
  • We believe education is a shared responsibility, and that we achieve the best outcomes for our students by working together.
We are also guided by the six co-operative values, which we share with all other co-operative schools and institutions:

We encourage participation in the life of our College, operating student voice, staff voice and parent voice groups that contribute to the development of the College.

We believe that everyone can help themselves to be better, and that we can help people to help themselves by modelling self-improvement to others.

We believe in fairness, and we enable the highest standards of learning, regardless of needs.

We are a comprehensive, inclusive and non- selective College. We recognise and celebrate our individual diversity.

We help people take responsibility for their actions, and we accept responsibility for our own

We are aware of our local, national and global communities. We contribute to, and learn from them.
