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.

Our Sixth Formers are taking part in a series of courses and training sessions to equip them for life beyond school.

As part of our commitment to equip our students with the skills to manage life in the outside world, we are offering a series of classes, workshops and training on a range of useful topics. The Sixth Formers have completed a survey about which skills they would like to learn and the programme has begun with car maintenance and self defence.

Other topics which will be covered include understanding university rental agreements, personal finance, cooking, employment law and first aid. We also have a former MI6 officer coming to talk to the students about keeping safe when travelling abroad.
