West Buckland still welcomes new enquiries for 2020

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.


All the information you need to join us at West Buckland School, from the process to fees and scholarships, financial support to key forms.

Admissions at West Buckland School

Due to current restrictions in place, we are currenly unable to offer visits or tours around the school site.

However, we’d be delighted for you to join us for our Virtual Open Day on Saturday 16th May. For more information, click on the button below.

Virtual Open Day

Skype calls
Rather than meeting parents and families face to face, our Admissions Manager will instead hold an initial call before setting up a Skype/Teams meeting with either the Headmaster or another senior member of staff.

Given that we are unable to invite pupils on site to sit the entrance assessments we can arrange for this to be completed online. The assessment can be carried out at home under the supervision of parents / guardians.

Along with completion of these assessments, we will also request school reports and a hand written introductory piece of writing/ personal statement reference from your child’s current school.

Offer of a Place

By adjusting our admissions policy, as above, we will still be able to continue to accept new registrations and offer school places for a September 2020 entry.
