Lizzie – Year 13


I started in Reception so West Buckland has certainly been a major part of my life! I am currently in Year 13 and studying geography, maths and statistics and PE as A-levels.

So far I have had the most memorable experience as a member of the Sixth Form and I believe that it is only set to improve with the incredible new facilities that we now have. Everybody else that joins us and gets to spend time and work in this environment is extremely fortunate.

Sport has always been a huge part of my life and this has always been encouraged and there are lots of opportunities available.

I knew that starting Year 13 would be daunting but the support that I have been given has made it very enjoyable and exciting, at a time where a lot is at stake with the prospect of university applications.

I chose to board for my last year as I hoped I would be able to get even more from the community and take advantage of the opportunities that I had access to whilst I still had the chance.
