At Buckswood we have one aim – that is for every student to be the best they can be; and in doing so has explored the world around them with a sense of adventure, has discovered where their skills and passions lie and has gained a wealth of qualifications and experience. To achieve our aim, our approach is holistic.

We know that in every child we must build self-confidence, self-belief, a sense of worth and a sense of purpose. We offer our students many, many opportunities to try new things, visit new places, meet new people, because at Buckswood we do not confine our learning to just inside the classroom.

A Buckswood education is a personal journey. Every child is different and we recognise and value talent wherever it chooses to form in a child; be it on the sports field, in a science lab or in the stroke of a paintbrush.
