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.

ADMISSIONS

All the information you need to join us at West Buckland School, from the process to fees and scholarships, financial support to key forms.

Admissions at West Buckland School

We are now beginning to offer limited and pre-arranged tours of both the Prep and Senior schools.  These will be restricted and carefully regulated to comply with social distancing regulations.  However, for the most part, we are still offering the following options:

Skype calls
Rather than meeting parents and families face to face, our Admissions Manager will instead hold an initial call before setting up a Skype/Teams meeting with either the Headmaster or another senior member of staff.

Assessments
Given that we are unable to invite pupils on site to sit the entrance assessments we can arrange for this to be completed online. The assessment can be carried out at home under the supervision of parents / guardians.

Along with completion of these assessments, we will also request school reports and a hand written introductory piece of writing/ personal statement reference from your child’s current school.

Offer of a Place

By adjusting our admissions policy, as above, we will still be able to continue to accept new registrations and offer school places for a September 2020 entry.
