Why Move to Tiverton
This is a well-connected large town known for its romantic castles, historic houses, and fascinating heritage. Just right for those who like to be in the thick of it but not too far from green areas and the glorious Devon coast.
Tiverton or Tivvy as locals call it, is the main commercial and administrative centre of the Mid Devon district.
Tivvy also doubles as a great place to call home, especially so if you work in one of the regions cities such as Exeter (a respectable commute of 14 miles/30 mins). Further away but definitely commutable are the cities of Plymouth (67 miles) and Bristol (68 miles).
Tiverton’s beginnings stretch as far back as the Stone Age, confirmed by the many flint tools found in the area.
For a while during the early 18th century, the town enjoyed an era of prosperity when it became the industrial centre of Devon’s fabric and woollen trades. Sadly, however, most of these once thriving trades have all but vanished with just the Heathcote Lace Factory still in operation.
These days Tiverton is mainly a residential area with its growth supported by large housing projects to the north of the town by most national house builders, including Westbury Homes, Barrett Homes and Bellway Homes.
Situated close to an array of coastal destinations and the world-famous Exmoor and Dartmouth moors mean that residents can make the most of both.
The town also stands at the confluence of the rivers Exe and Lowman offering even more choice when it comes to getting out and about.
Hosting a plethora of cultural experiences, the town centre, boasts a thrice weekly market, an eclectic mix of retailers both independents and more well-known stores sitting alongside plenty of eateries.
In fact, Tiverton serves its inhabitants extremely well. There is everything one could possibly need here and all very nicely centralised.
Schools & Education
For the most part all schools in the catchment area of the town have been rated as performing well over the past few years by Ofsted.
There is only one school which “requires improvement” (St John’s Catholic Primary School). The school is working hard to address its shortfall, in order to improve before its next inspection.
All other schools for the 5-11 age bracket are doing well with Ofsted having given them all a rating of “good”.
Tiverton High School is also a “good” rated school. Last inspected very recently in 2019, it was reported that “The schools leadership team has maintained the good quality of education since the last inspection, and that the headteacher lead a highly inclusive school which benefits pupils and the local community”.
Blundell’s Prep School for 2-11years and Blundell’s School for 11-18 years are the only two independents in the town, but both are highly regarded institutions.
When children leave school, they can attend the towns FE Petroc College campus. Devon’s leading College, it provides a range of courses including apprenticeships, Higher Education, part time and adult evening classes.
