Diocese of Exeter

There are 133 Church of England Schools in the Diocese of Exeter. Together, this family of schools, academies, trusts and federations educate over 28,500 children. We support these schools in developing and sustaining a Christian vision of education. To this end, through our services to schools, we provide a wealth of information, resources, support and signposting for headteachers, staff, clergy and governors.
