West Buckland School is an independent day and boarding school for girls and boys aged 3 to 18. There are currently about 480 pupils aged 11-18, over 190 aged 5-11 and a Nursery with more than 20 boys and girls. Over 100 pupils are boarders.

Over the years the school has developed a strong sense of community and there is much emphasis on everyone participating in the life of the school. A sound general education is provided and examination results are excellent.


Boys and girls are admitted as boarders or day pupils. The current ratio of boarders to day pupils is 1:5. Entry to the Preparatory School is by interview and assessment, to the Senior School by examination at 11 and 13, or to the Sixth Form by interview and school report.

Registration Fee £50

Advance Deposit: Day Pupils £300, Boarders £1000

Scholarships and Bursaries are awarded at the Headmasters discretion and as such, would need to be discussed with the Headmaster.


West Buckland School has, for a long time, enjoyed a boarding community that is rich in its diversity of cultural and ethnic background. Whilst a significant number of boarders are Cantonese, many other countries are represented amongst the boarders. In particular, the school regularly accepts pupils from Russia and former eastern block countries, Thailand, Brazil, Germany and Spain as well as short-term visitors from France. This diversity is welcomed and encouraged by the school, particularly given the lack of multi-cultural experience most residents of North Devon might otherwise have.
