Where Dreams Begin

Giving your child the best possible start in the best possible environment.

Welcome from the Prep Headmaster

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

From Nursery to Year 6, our pupils enjoy small class sizes and a stimulating and nurturing environment in which they have the space and time to learn, play and explore.  This really is a school where children are allowed to be children.

A Leading Prep School in Devon

We provide opportunities for every pupil to fire their passions, whilst developing a lifelong love of learning. Being a confident and happy member of our community is 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.

– Nick Robinson, Prep Headmaster

Wholesome, Fulfilling, Diverse

The sort of education that only a prep school in Devon can truly deliver!

Our location is a huge part of what defines us. Situated on the edge of Exmoor, with beautiful rolling hills on all sides – we enjoy a wonderful, nurturing and safe campus location for our prep and senior school students.

And being just half an hour from the beach has its advantages too! We pride ourselves on the rounded nature of the education we deliver as a leading prep school in Devon.
