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.

Climbing success for WBS

It was a great weekend for our pupils in the South West inter-school climbing competition organised by Rock and Rapid in North Molton.

Over 22 WBS pupils took part, spanning the age ranges from Year 3 through to Year 12.

In the senior school, 16 pupils took first place, making WBS the winning school overall. Sam Johnson and Zac Johnson had a climb off to win first and second place in the Year 7-9 category. Megan Brooks achieved 2nd place for girls Year 7-9 and Henry McCarthy came third in Year 10-13 boys.

West Buckland school has a strong tradition of winning indoor climbing competitions. It was great to see so many young climbers to have the confidence to give it a go. Rock and Rapid’s new bouldering room makes for a great venue to development climbing and movement skills.

The school climbs on a Monday 8-10pm and Tuesday 4-6pm. Climbing is also an option at GCSE PE. Please see Mr Hathway if you would like more details in climbing and performance coaching sessions
