We'd love your child to benefit from thriving and developing under the nurturing care of our dedicated staff. Come and see us.

Your Path to joining us

We want to make it as easy as possible for you to join and recommend that you take the following steps to help you decide whether West Buckland is the place for you.

Come Find Out More

We hold at least two live Open Days per year which are a great opportunity to get a feel for the school, tour our lovely campus and meet our staff and students.  We also hold a number of ‘virtual’ Open Days for those further afield.

However, every day is an Open Day at West Buckland and we would encourage you to contact our Admissions team to arrange a visit.

If you’re still not sure, we can arrange a ‘taster day’ for your child, when they can spend the day at school with their own peer group.

Registering Your Child

Thank you for considering registration with us. By completing the registration process, you express your interest in proceeding with the necessary arrangements for entry. Once registered, we will reach out to you to coordinate the Entrance Assessment.

To access the registration form and begin the process, please click here. Alternatively, the registration form can be found on the bottom of this page if you prefer a paper copy.


Entrance Requirements

Children joining us from the Prep school do not have to sit an entrance assessment to gain entry to the Senior school.

Year 7: Children looking to join West Buckland School in Year 7 will need to undertake a standardised Entrance Assessment, which covers Maths, English and Verbal Reasoning. This is largely just for setting purposes and children should not feel anxious.

For entry in September 2023, we invite families to book in an appointment to come and sit the assessment in school, at their convenience.  Children of families who live far away or overseas can do the assessment in their current school under supervision.

To register for the Year 7 assessment, click on the link below:

Years 8 to 10:  we welcome applications from pupils in Years 8 to 10.  Pupils will be asked to complete assessments in Maths and English and this can be arranged at a convenient time.

Come and Join Us

Hopefully, we will then be in a position to offer your child a place and will then guide you through the process leading up to their joining us.

If you’re already enrolled and have completed the admissions process then head over the Middle School New Starter page for information packs.
