Gary-Read-PrincipalWelcome to the Whipton Barton Federation. We are two schools and nursery working as one to serve the children and community of Whipton, Exeter. The schools came together as a formal federation in 2015 and I joined as Executive Headteacher in September 2016. It’s a great place to be. I hope our website gives you a glimpse of what we do and enough information for you to want to find out more. If you do, then please contact us either by telephone or email to arrange a visit. I look forward to meeting you.
