We aim to nurture students and staff so that they are celebrated and leave having achieved their personal bests.
We want to be leaders in offering an education which is forward thinking, extending beyond classroom constraints.
We strive to be the number one choice of school for outstanding, holistic, co-education in the South West.
Academic excellence is the heart of a West Buckland education because it opens doors in pupils’ lives. Our pupils challenge their knowledge and develop as balanced, accomplished individuals who can make a difference.
Our pupils gain the confidence to believe in their abilities to tackle the future, to make sound judgements and to resist the temptation to play safe. Through Christian values they learn to respect others, to be ambitious with a clear sense of purpose and to develop a balanced view of life. They are encouraged to be trail-blazers and to change expectations.
Community life can rarely be captured on a website. The only way to get a genuine feel for what we believe in and what we do is to visit, and meet the people who are the beating heart of the school.
