Find out more about our amazing Senior school and how you can be part of it.
Academic excellence is the heart of a West Buckland education because it opens doors in pupils’ lives. Our pupils challenge their knowledge and develop as balanced, accomplished individuals who can make a difference.
Our pupils gain the confidence to believe in their abilities to tackle the future, to make sound judgements and to resist the temptation to play safe. Through Christian values they learn to respect others, to be ambitious with a clear sense of purpose and to develop a balanced view of life. They are encouraged to be trail-blazers and to change expectations.
Community life can rarely be captured on a website. The only way to get a genuine feel for what we believe in and what we do is to visit, and meet the people who are the beating heart of the school.
Phillip Stapleton, Senior School Headmaster
"A strong work ethic has been instilled in the children meaning they can achieve their potential both now and in the future."
“All the children are encouraged to strive for what they want to achieve be it sporting, musical or dramatic prowess and university, military or other careers.”
"We have been impressed with the way the school challenges and inspires its pupils to high levels of achievement."
“I particularly like the wide range of pupils at the school both in terms of background and academic ability.”
"I would have no hesitation in recommending a West Buckland education."
"If we hadn't attended an open day we wouldn't have known of the support available at such a wonderful school and the community within it."
