The West Buckland School Choirs, both Senior and Prep, along with the North Devon Sinfonia, put on a wonderful performance of Mozart's Requiem at Exeter Cathedral on Saturday evening. The concert was well-attended and it was great to see two of the school's alumni, William Brockman - bass vocals and Ana Fernandez - soprano, return to the stage. Many thanks to the school's President, Lady Arran for introducing the evening. More photos are available on our Facebook page.
A group of Year 9 students have achieved their global citizenship awards and as part of the United World Schools charity have raised £149 for our partner school, Khe Khrom. Khe Khrom school is located in the Northern Stung Treng province of Cambodia.
Students undertook fundraising activities, such as cake sales, a 'Guess the Teacher's Age' competition and even busked before the Summer Concert hosted at the school last week. The money raised will go towards helping Khe Khrom school with resources and staffing. Congratulations to all involved for your efforts.

Year 12 Economics students enjoyed a two-day trip to the City of London. After a visit to the House of Commons to meet North Devon MP, Peter Heaton-Jones and watching the closing stages of a Brexit debate, the students had the opportunity to meet leaders of industry. The highlight was privileged access inside the Bank of England together with the time to question the bank's Executive Director, Lyndon Nelson.
