Sixth formers enjoy outstanding facilities at West Buckland, centring around Parker’s, the new sixth form boarding house, which also houses vibrant social and study areas for both boarders and day pupils. This allows our sixth formers both independence and a place where they can relax and study, away from the busy school campus.
In addition, the beautiful new Michael Morpurgo Library provides a dedicated sixth form study area on the upper floor, creating a pre-university experience.
The facilities available to sixth formers also includes the exceptional Jonathan Edwards Sports Centre which opened in 2008. The Centre houses a first class fitness suite and sports hall equipped for a wide range of sports including basketball, cricket nets, indoor hockey, netball, five-a-side football and many other activities. There are also cricket, rugby and football pitches, an all-weather hockey pitch, an indoor 25m swimming pool, tennis and squash courts, two shooting ranges, obstacle course and a nine-hole golf course.
The award winning 150 Building opened in 2010 and provides incredible facilities for Art, Design Technology and Drama. These include a dedicated studio for sixth form artists, a print workshop for textiles, a photographic dark room and kiln. Design Technology students work in two first class workshops together with a dedicated ICT room.
