A great day of creativity and learning was had when Mrs Recycle visited the Nursery children. They learned all about recycling and the dangers of plastic in our seas, mainly the threat it poses to the sea creatures there and to the environment.
The Year 11 students celebrated the end of what has been an intense period of study for their GCSEs with a fabulous evening at Broomhill. They were able to relax, dress up and look forward to the next stage of their education.

The school hosted the Carnegie Book Award Shadowing Event in the 150 theatre yesterday, where local schools came with teams of pupils to make presentations on chosen books as part of the scheme. We were delighted to welcome Mitch Johnson, the visiting author this year who gave a talk on his writing experiences and his newly published book, 'Kick'.
West Buckland students were the first group to present their thoughts, covering the book 'Rook' by Anthony McGowan. Great presentations were given by all the schools attending but it was Pilton School who won reflecting on 'After the Fire' by Will Hill.
During half term week, students from Years 7 - 9 travelled to Gredos, Spain where they had an enriching cultural and learning experience including a master-class on how to cook Spanish tortillas, practicing their archery and hearing about how the local ecosystems work.
An intensive, immersive and fun experience en español.
