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.

Creativity at its finest! On Saturday 18th January we welcomed 44 gifted writers and artists from South Molton Community College and The Park Community School to join with our own to embark upon a workshop exploring the theme of ‘the unknown’.

We discussed famous literary texts associated with the theme and watched animations to help shape some creative writing for character and setting. After this, the students started to generate ideas for their own character or focus of their chosen form: poetry, prose or non-fiction.

The next session is on Saturday 22nd February where we will be looking at different illustration and artistic skills with children’s book illustrator, Joseph Witchall.
