West Buckland School

The West Buckland School campus is naturally safe and secure, as it is set in 37 hectares of stunning North Devon countryside, beside the Atlantic coast.

“The best thing about boarding at West Buckland is having access to fantastic facilities at weekends” (Jo, Year 12)

In recent years, over £14m has been spent on facilities, including a Sixth Form co-educational boarding house with 70 en-suite single bedrooms, as well as a state-of-the-art library and study centre. These, along with the outstanding Art and Design Technology building and first-class sporting complex, are amongst the best to be found in any school in the region.


The school is lively and vibrant, with a well-supported boarding community of around 150 UK and international students from 18 countries.  Our boarders enjoy a busy and varied programme of activities, including surfing, mixed football, yoga and art, making the most of our amazing facilities and location.  Pastoral care is excellent, with a support system of houseparents, tutors, nurses, counsellors, mentors and teaching staff to assist students.

The school has enjoyed a strong academic track record for many years, making it by far the most successful school in the region
