There is a thriving and vibrant international boarding community at West Buckland and we are always delighted to welcome international students aged 11-18 to join us.
The school offers both long term and short term study programmes and all our international students are an important part of our strong and close knit school community. Around 85% of students are from the UK which means our international students are immersed in an English-speaking, British school environment.
It can be a daunting prospect to leave home and move to a new school in a new country. We do all we can to welcome our international students into our community and make them feel at home and part of the school family.
Our boarding houses are run by houseparents who look after students outside of the normal school day and do all they can to ensure students are happy, confident and have a great experience at West Buckland.
We want our international students to feel cared for the moment they enter the UK, and we can provide a pick up and drop off service at London Heathrow at the start and end of each term. More details can be found here.
