Giving your child the best possible start in the best possible environment.
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.
From Nursery to Year 6, our pupils enjoy small class sizes and a stimulating and nurturing environment in which they have the space and time to learn, play and explore. This really is a school where children are allowed to be children.
We provide opportunities for every pupil to fire their passions, whilst developing a lifelong love of learning. Being a confident and happy member of our community is important, along with forging strong friendships.
I am incredibly proud of our school and the best way to experience what we do is to come and visit.

“‘I love school’ he tells both us and friends. That makes us happy parents.”
"The staff at West Buckland strike a perfect balance between securing the respect of the children whilst not losing sight that learning should be fun."
"We wanted a school that achieved our desire for our boys to achieve their potential academically but not at the expense of them being children"
"Our children especially enjoy the variety of activities on offer during the school day, and have benefited from them hugely."
Our location is a huge part of what defines us. Situated on the edge of Exmoor, with beautiful rolling hills on all sides – we enjoy a wonderful, nurturing and safe campus location for our prep and senior school students.
And being just half an hour from the beach has its advantages too! We pride ourselves on the rounded nature of the education we deliver as a leading prep school in Devon.
