Where Dreams Begin

Giving your child the best possible start in the best possible environment.

Welcome from the Prep Head

Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions any parent will make and I firmly believe that West Buckland Prep School gives children the very best start in life.

A Leading Prep School in Devon

West Buckland Prep School is a vibrant hive of activity. No two days are the same and we pride ourselves on providing opportunities and experiences that challenge and inspire, whilst creating a passion for life-long learning. 

We are so lucky to sit on an idyllic site on the edge of Exmoor. Our pupils have access to nearly 100 acres of green space in which to learn, play and explore. This really is a school where children are allowed to be children; dishevelled hair and muddy knees are signs of a day well spent. 

Being an integral part of the wider school community at West Buckland means our pupils have access to superb facilities and our Prep staff are all experts in their field. We aim to create happy confident learners who have the skills and character to face the challenges of our modern world. 

Most importantly, our school is happy, the sound of children’s chatter and laughter fill our corridors. I hope you will come and visit us to see what makes our school such a magical place to learn.
