I am currently studying Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Biology in Year 13. I have been in the school since Year 4, and in that time I feel that West Buckland has enabled me to meet a wide range of people or different nationalities and make some really good, life-long friends.
Whilst there is a lot of work, the teachers give me the support I need, when I need it. I am a boarder, currently living in Parker’s, the new sixth form house – it has a very good atmosphere both during the day and also after school, with the right combination of working and interacting, making it a very productive and enjoyable place to live. The house parents are also very kind, hardworking and helpful, but at the same time treat people with respect. Boarding is definitely something that I would recommend as it helps you to become a more independent, resourceful individual.
