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.

Creative writing partnership starts again for 2020

Creativity at its finest! On Saturday 18th January we welcomed 44 gifted writers and artists from South Molton Community College and The Park Community School to join with our own to embark upon a workshop exploring the theme of ‘the unknown’.

We discussed famous literary texts associated with the theme and watched animations to help shape some creative writing for character and setting. After this, the students started to generate ideas for their own character or focus of their chosen form: poetry, prose or non-fiction.

The next session is on Saturday 22nd February where we will be looking at different illustration and artistic skills with children’s book illustrator, Joseph Witchall.
