Students of all ages make the most of our coasts and countryside

At West Buckland School, we are so lucky to able to use our location for learning and playing. With stunning beaches on our doorstep and 90 acres of beautiful campus, in these times of restriction our students don’t need to have their wings clipped. With lots of sports, CCF, Ten Tors and DofE at the heart of our outdoor activities, we also take advantage of our local surroundings for lessons and clubs on a daily basis.

Beach trips for biology

On Tuesday 29 September, our Year 13 Biology students had a field trip to Lee Bay.

The main aim was to design their own investigations into the factors that affect the distribution and abundance of organisms on an intertidal rocky shore ecosystem.

Surfing at Croyde

This week Year 7 had a fantastic sunny evening for their weekly surfing session at Croyde, one of the best surfing beaches in the country.

Forest School in our back garden

Closer to home, our youngest pupils have Forest School weekly, when they explore our campus and build, make, learn and play in the woodlands, streams and fields around school. This week they built a den and a bridge.
