We'd love your child to benefit from thriving and developing under the nurturing care of our dedicated staff. Come and see us.
We want to make it as easy as possible for you to join and recommend that you take the following steps to help you decide whether West Buckland is the place for you.
We hold two Open Days during the year, in October and May, which are an ideal time to visit the school and meet some of our staff.
However, every day is an Open Day at West Buckland and our Sixth Formers will be delighted to take you on a tour of the school on any agreed day.
If you’re still not sure, we can arrange a ‘taster day’ for your child, when they can spend the day at school with their own peer group.
Registering with us signals that you wish to proceed with arrangements for entry. We will then contact you to schedule the Entrance Assessment.
See the Additional Information section below for the Registration Form.
Year 7: Children looking to join West Buckland School in Year 7 will need to undertake an Entrance Assessment, which covers Maths, English and Verbal Reasoning. Dates of our assessment days are published each year and are in November, January and March prior to the September joining date.
Children joining us from the Prep school do not have to sit an entrance assessment to gain entry to the Senior school.
Years 8 to 10: we welcome applications from pupils in Years 8 to 10. Pupils will be asked to complete assessments in Maths and English.
Hopefully, we will then be in a position to offer your child a place and will then guide you through the process leading up to their joining us.
If you’re already enrolled and have completed the admissions process then head over the Senior New Starter page for information packs.
