Students are welcomed into a vibrant and diverse boarding community at West Buckland. In addition to significant numbers of UK students, we regularly welcome pupils from the People's Republic of China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, Slovenia, Russia, Ukraine and other eastern European countries, Brazil, Germany, France and Spain.
The boarding experience at West Buckland is a great experience. The boarding community is strong and close knit. Our team of houseparents create a warm, homely environment in the boarding houses where everyone is welcomed and accepted.
Boarders have an immense range of opportunities to take part in activities outside of the normal school day and at weekends. Please see an example of the activities available:
All boarding students have access to e-mail and internet facilities to allow easy communication with friends and family at home and this is encouraged.
Boarders stay on-site at weekends but leave during school holidays where they will either return home or stay with their guardian or host families.
Boarding at West Buckland is an exciting experience and we hope you will want to find out more about the special boarding ‘family’ at West Buckland.
From September 2017 we are delighted to be able to offer new weekly and flexi-boarding packages, offering exceptional value for money and great opportunities for pupils and busy parents here.
