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.


The best advice we can give, if you are interested in a West Buckland education for your child, is to visit us.

Open Days

We will be holding a Virtual Open Day on Saturday 16th May and you are most welcome to join us. This will include being taken on a tour of the school by the Headmaster and taking part in a live Q&A session with senior members of staff.  To register click here.  You will receive joining instructions from us in due course.

Once the current restrictions are removed we will be, once again, welcoming parents and prospective pupils to visit the school at any time, but we do recommend visiting during term time when the school is in action.
