This web site is for all former pupils and staff of Ravenswood Prep' school, Stoodleigh village in Devon, England.
The school sadly closed down in the early 1990's and this site has been built so that ex pupils/staff can find out what happened to old friends, and to catch up on news.
Ravenswood School was founded in Paignton in 1921. In 1928 larger premises became necessary and Stoodleigh Court (as it was then known) was acquired by the then Headmaster, Mr Sparks. The building was constructed in 1881 in the Tudor style, and was a private house until 1925. The building stands in it's own grounds of 29 acres, 800 feet above sea level, in beautiful wooded countryside with views across the Exe Valley.
The above text is taken from a School brochure that was given to prospective parents and dates from the mid '60's The costs for being a 'Full Boarder' are 160 pounds per term !!!
