Pupils from the Prep School put on an excellent Summer Concert, 'De Animals Are Comin'! performing to family and friends last Wednesday. They showcased a range of different songs and dressed up as animals - the theme of the evening.

Notable highlights included 6B's, 'The Ugly Duckling', 'Tiger Feet', sung by Preps 5 & 6 and a self-composed song by Dulcie Carless and Mischa Hanson. Prep 5 sung 'Count on Me' with a solo spot from the departing Zoran Plummer and Prep 6  leavers performed solos on their chosen instruments. All-in-all a very enjoyable evening filled with entertainment. Well done to all involved.

After 40 years at West Buckland, Mr Bob Clarke taught his final Chemistry lesson before retiring at the end of term. 

"Teaching my last lesson gave me that same thrill as teaching my first, except I wasn't quite as worried about how the lesson would go this time."

Bob Clarke's teaching spans generations - pictured here with Year 12 students, Ayaka Watanabe and Emily Jellard, having taught their fathers. We thank him for all of his hard work and dedication over the years and wish him the very best for the future.

Well done to lead wicket-taker, Year 9 Ethan  Cross, top run scorer, Year 9 Reuben Windley and to all for a  brilliant team performance. A very positive ending to the school's cricket season and for coach, Mr Dominic Ford, who leaves at the end of term to start a new position in China.
