In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the school is currently implementing a comprehensive online academic programme for all of our students, using Microsoft Teams. Our aim is to continue to provide this until such time as we are able to open again.
Our Admissions office is still open for enquiries for September 2020 and beyond.
The school will continue to support the North Devon community through provision of PPE and practical help, as long as it is needed.
West Buckland School runs an impressive range of bus services which cover most parts of North Devon and West Somerset.
Most of our day pupils travel to school each day and many have a substantial journey. For our weekly boarders, the buses can be used on Monday mornings and Friday evenings.
Wherever possible, we try to ensure that all our regular program of activities is complete before buses leave the school campus at the end of the day. For those that don’t, we do offer flexi-boarding as a way to ease the strain on busy family life.
We take safety on our buses very seriously and Bus Prefects ensure younger passengers feel safe and have secured their safety belts. Prep pupils are escorted to and from the bus stop at school at the start and end of every day.
