It's not just our location in South West England that is fantastic. Find out what our considerable campus has to offer within its grounds.

Unbeatable Location & Unrivalled Facilities

Described as “a gem of a school in an outstanding location” by the Good Schools Guide, West Buckland School, founded in 1858 is set in 90 acres of stunning countryside close to the spectacular Atlantic coast in the South West of England. But it’s not just our location that is spectacular.

Our campus has been transformed in recent years, with over £14 million having been spent on the facilities, creating an environment which combines beautiful, traditional buildings, reflecting the school’s proud beginnings, with modern, spacious, light buildings, indicative of the forward thinking school that we have become.

Tour the Sports Centre

These spectacular new facilities include the Jonathan Edwards sports centre, built in 2008, which includes a multi-use sports hall, PE classrooms and fitness suite.  The sports hall has facilities for basketball, badminton, netball, indoor tennis, cricket nets, 5-a-side football and other recreational sports. In addition, our sports facilities also include a 25m indoor swimming pool, a floodlit AstroTurf, squash courts and indoor/outdoor shooting range.
