We currently have around 130 students studying A-levels in a range of subjects and enjoying the excellent new facilities in Parker’s and the Michael Morpurgo Library, creating the ideal setting for study and living.

Our academic results are very strong, consistently placing us amongst the highest performing schools in the South West.

Many students have been at West Buckland throughout their education, while increasing numbers are joining us after completing their GCSEs at other schools in the UK. We also welcome sixth formers from many other countries who wish to enjoy the unique ethos of the West Buckland School Sixth Form.

Boarding in the Sixth Form is becoming increasingly popular, with the students enjoying the first class boarding facilities in Parker’s, with its 70 en-suite bedrooms and modern social areas.

As a sixth former at West Buckland, you will benefit from first class teaching, outstanding facilities, a superb range of extra-curricular activities and be encouraged to express your own views, think independently, develop your own ideas and gain the confidence to succeed in your life beyond school.

"In Year 12 I started boarding in Parker’s, the new Sixth Form building, which I would highly recommend. Parker’s is an amazing place for me as it allows me to socialise during breaks and work when I need to, as well as being my home for four nights of the week"

"Sixth Formers work hard to achieve the grades they need but also have the opportunities to do a wide range of activities and get involved in the truly unique lifestyle here at West Buckland."
