New Starters in Sixth Form

We are delighted that you are going to be joining West Buckland’s Sixth Form and I would like to personally extend a warm welcome from myself and all the staff.

Sixth Form is often considered the pinnacle of West Buckland life and we do hope that you will enjoy our fantastic facilities and all the opportunities that are on offer.

Starting at a new school can often be a stressful and anxious time, as well as an exciting one, marking a new chapter in your education. We therefore try, as hard as possible, to make the transition as seamless and easy as possible for you and your family!

Below you will find all the paperwork that needs to be completed prior to starting at West Buckland.  All these forms can be downloaded or filled in and sent online, but our Admissions team are always available on the phone if you have any queries.


Matthew Brimson, Head of Sixth Form
