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.

It was a great weekend for our pupils in the South West inter-school climbing competition organised by Rock and Rapid in North Molton.

Over 22 WBS pupils took part, spanning the age ranges from Year 3 through to Year 12.

In the senior school, 16 pupils took first place, making WBS the winning school overall. Sam Johnson and Zac Johnson had a climb off to win first and second place in the Year 7-9 category. Megan Brooks achieved 2nd place for girls Year 7-9 and Henry McCarthy came third in Year 10-13 boys.

West Buckland school has a strong tradition of winning indoor climbing competitions. It was great to see so many young climbers to have the confidence to give it a go. Rock and Rapid’s new bouldering room makes for a great venue to development climbing and movement skills.

The school climbs on a Monday 8-10pm and Tuesday 4-6pm. Climbing is also an option at GCSE PE. Please see Mr Hathway if you would like more details in climbing and performance coaching sessions
