West Buckland COVID-19 updates

With the end of term approaching, we turn our attention to September and what we are expecting to be a full return to lessons.  For information on what we have achieved and what how we are planning for September, please click here.

As a BSA school we have signed up to their COVID-Safe Charter, available here.  In addition, and to endorse our commitment to ensuring the safety of our students and staff, we have created our own WBS Hygiene Charter.

For our new and returning international students, our Frequently Asked Questions document will provide useful information and reassurances. Please view it here.


West Buckland School runs an impressive range of bus services which cover most parts of North Devon and West Somerset.


Most of our day pupils travel to school each day and many have a substantial journey.  For our weekly boarders, the buses can be used on Monday mornings and Friday evenings.

Wherever possible, we try to ensure that all our regular program of activities is complete before buses leave the school campus at the end of the day.  For those that don’t, we do offer flexi-boarding as a way to ease the strain on busy family life.

We take safety on our buses very seriously and Bus Prefects ensure younger passengers feel safe and have secured their safety belts.  Prep pupils are escorted to and from the bus stop at school at the start and end of every day.

Details of the services can be viewed by clicking on the links below.
