Welcome to West Buckland


West Buckland School was founded in 1858 and is an independent day and boarding school set in 100 acres of beautiful North Devon countryside in the South West of England.

Today, West Buckland is a vibrant school with a strong supportive community, welcoming over 600 children aged from three to eighteen years into our Nursery, Preparatory, Senior School and Sixth Form.

Teaching is challenging and stimulating, and the school has a consistently high record of academic achievement. Our students also benefit from exceptional opportunities in sport, music, the performing arts and a whole host of other extra-curricular activities.

The aims and ethos of our school are to enable all pupils to develop the personal qualities, abilities and values which will prepare them to make the most of their own lives and to contribute to society.
