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.

Our Sixth Formers are taking part in a series of courses and training sessions to equip them for life beyond school.

Life skills classes to equip our Sixth Formers for the wider world

As part of our commitment to equip our students with the skills to manage life in the outside world, we are offering a series of classes, workshops and training on a range of useful topics. The Sixth Formers have completed a survey about which skills they would like to learn and the programme has begun with car maintenance and self defence.

Other topics which will be covered include understanding university rental agreements, personal finance, cooking, employment law and first aid. We also have a former MI6 officer coming to talk to the students about keeping safe when travelling abroad.
