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.

I joined West Buckland prep school in year 4 and am now a weekly boarder in year 12, making the most of the incredible new sixth form facilities. Parker’s not only offers us a friendly community to live in but also a perfect social space for sixth form day pupils to spend lunchtimes and study periods.

Life studying A levels, whilst participating in many extra curricular activities, can be challenging but being able to board has allowed me to organise my time well. In particular, I’m very involved with the school’s dynamic music department and have been part of the senior school orchestra and choir since year 7. I play the piano and the violin and like that there are many opportunities to play in formal and informal concerts throughout the year.

I am studying Spanish, English and Philosophy and overall, feel that my teachers and the careers information available are giving me an ideal pathway to further education.
