Welcome to the Preparatory School

Message from the Headmaster

Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions any parent will make and I firmly believe that a West Buckland Prep School education gives children the very best start in life.

The school is situated in an idyllic campus on the edge of Exmoor, with superb facilities and a talented staff team. From Nursery to Year 6 our pupils enjoy a stimulating and nurturing environment in which they have the space and time to learn, play and explore.


We provide opportunities and experiences for every pupil to excel, to challenge themselves and fire their passions, whilst developing a lifelong love of learning. Being a confident, kind and happy member of our community is equally important along with forging strong friendships.

I am incredibly proud of our school and the best way to experience what we do is to come and visit.
