Welcome to West Buckland

The leading independent school in North Devon

West Buckland School was founded in 1858 and is an independent co-ed 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 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.

Student Profiles

  • Mikhail – Year 11 - Russia

    mikhail

    Hello. My name is Mikhail Grishchenko, I am from Russia. I have started studying in this school since Easter holidays in Year 8 and now I am in Year 11. I am enjoying my time here and I have got many friends. I am enjoying the boarding community and it made me a much more responsible person. Here, unlike Russian schools, I have an opportunity to choose subjects which are interesting for me and might be connected with my future higher education. In my A-Levels (in the twelfth and thirteenth class), I plan to study chemistry, biology and physics.

    Our children have been at West Buckland School from the prep years right through to the sixth form. The school has a cheerful atmosphere and attends to the needs and aspirations of each child treating them as the individuals they are. A strong work ethic has been instilled in the children meaning they can achieve their potential both now and in the future. I particularly like the wide range of pupils at the school both in terms of background and academic ability. All the children are encouraged to strive for what they want to achieve be it sporting, musical or dramatic prowess and university, military or other careers. In short, I would have no hesitation in recommending a West Buckland education.
