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.

Assistant Houseparent, Bamfylde

My name is Alina Melchior.  I started working with children in 1990, teaching Latin in Europe for few years then travelled around the world working with children of all ages and abilities.

In the last nine years working in the junior girls house I feel privileged to have been part of the boarders’ growing up process, offering them full support and helping them to become confident, caring and courageous people.

In my spare time I am often seen happily walking my dog on in Exmoor enjoying its beautiful scenery or spending quality time with my friends and family.
