Welcome to the Senior School

School life for West Buckland’s senior pupils is a challenging and stimulating experience. We have high standards and our pupils aim high but this is a community where the quality of relationships and the needs of individuals matter more than examination league tables.

Our students are encouraged to stretch themselves in their academic work, to aim to reach their full potential and achieve qualifications which will give them the ability to make choices for their lives beyond school.

We are committed to enabling our students at all ages to have a rich variety of experiences which will help them to develop as young adults. Our extra-curricular provision has been rated as ‘Excellent’ by the Independent Schools Inspectorate and our pupils have exceptional opportunities across sport, music, the performing arts, outdoor and a whole host of other activities.

Pastoral care is at the heart of everything that we do: this is a school community where individuals feel they are well known, valued and where we have time for each other.
