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.


Awarded at years 7 and 11, scholarships are open to internal and external candidates for excellence in academia.

Our Scholarship Programme

Scholarships are awarded on the basis of excellence in academia.  Awards are not means-tested and are open to internal and external candidates.

Scholarships do not necessarily carry a financial reward but will allow the student access to a higher performance programme. For those seeking financial support, please click here.

All awards are reviewed annually and are tenable until the end of Year 11 for 11+ (Year 7) awards, or the end of Year 13 for 16+ (Year 12) awards.  Pupils awarded a scholarship will be expected to perform strongly in the area of their award and make a significant contribution to the life of the school in general.
