 We were visited yesterday at the Devon County Show ground by Prep 6, who performed a range of different songs to the audience in 'The Watering Hole', a central point at the show.  Thank you to Mr Dominic Carter for organising such a wonderful performance and well done to Prep 6 who all sang beautifully.

We have had many visitors on the stand so far - alumni, current parents and friends. Our stand (43) is located in avenue A, so do come and join us over the course of the next couple of days if you are attending the Devon County Show.

More photos of our time at the show are available on our Facebook page.

West Buckland School, in coordination with the North Devon Astronomical Society, will once again host the Sir Patrick Moore Memorial Lecture and Black Tie Dinner on Friday 8th June 2018. This year's lecture will be given by Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell, perhaps the world's most famous female scientist, who started her career by discovering pulsars while at Cambridge University.

The annual event is always popular with students, parents and the wider community and this year's event promises to be the best yet.

Tickets for the black tie meal and lecture, served in The Karslake Hall at 6pm, are £25 for a single and £45 for a double ticket. For those just wanting to attend the lecture, which takes place at 7.45pm in the 150 theatre, the price is £5 and free for students.
