Totnes Progressive School

We are a small school with currently around 120 students.

Our mission is to create a learning environment where young people have the freedom, confidence and support to enjoy learning and achieve the very best they can.

We achieve this by having:


  • small class sizes, of 12 or less

  • no homework

  • happiness and wellbeing classes for all year groups

  • one to one Maths and English tuition when needed

  • mindfulness practice

  • professional life coaching

  • conflict resolution lessons

  • fun physical exercise as part of each day

If you are interested in your child joining TPS and would like to come and visit our school, please contact our admissions officer, Lotta at We will arrange for you to come for a tour and a chance to ask questions at a time that is convenient for you. Many thanks.

“I love the fact that the young people are treated as individuals and I love the fact that they are being inspired by teachers who really want to teach. Most of all though I love the fact that my kids truly want to be there.”

“Totnes Progressive School is truly a wonderful place for your child to learn. The curriculum is rich & varied, led by a fabulous team of teachers who show genuine care and encouragement for their pupils. I have been impressed with the outstanding results achieved in such a warm and nurturing environment. We have felt blessed to belong to the TOPS family. My children will be extremely sad to leave in July, but I know they leave with the skills, attitudes and values to succeed in life. “

"Most welcoming, warm, loving environment of any school I've visited. Amazing people!!"

This remarkably caring little school has truly changed our child's life. In under a year, he has gone from school phobic with extremely low self esteem to a happy and much more confident child who is flourishing emotionally, socially and academically. Small classes with a massive focus on nurturing children to achieve beyond their own expectations all contribute to them becoming decent human beings. We can't thank them enough!"

"As a family we have had an incredibly supportive experience during our time at Tops so far.

The care and dynamic input given to the students, from all who work there is exceptional.

The teachers are passionate about their purpose and due to the small classroom sizes, all the children and their individual needs can be met, both academically and emotionally. 

Individuality is encouraged and celebrated allowing the children to be who they truly are. 

Social and emotional development is not overlooked. 

There is a good balance of fun, creativity and hard work and children are really encouraged to be the best they can be in all areas."
