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.

How West Buckland is supporting the Community



Science labs donate safety goggles and glasses to medics

Our Head of Biology, Noah Shawcross, saw an article about the request to schools for protective eyewear for medics, which you can read about here https://www.theguardian.com/education/2020/mar/25/schools-asked-donate-science-goggles-nhs-use-face-shields

In response to this, all our science labs have donated their protective eyewear, including goggles and glasses, to local GP surgeries.


Don't forget the animals

The school has remained open to take care of the children of key workers so our caterers Holroyd Howe have kindly stayed open to keep everyone sustained. One of the unseen benefits of this is that the leftover fruit and vegetables and the peelings are being donated to Exmoor Zoo to feed the animals. Following a rain-soaked few months and now the current pandemic keeping the zoo closed to visitors for the foreseeable future, we are glad to do a little bit to help.
