Friends Revisit WBS

David Floyd (66-69C), Piers Rogers (64-69 C), Stephen Hooker (67-70 C) and Michael Hooker (66-69 C).

In the summer holidays of 2013, four gentlemen from the 1960s visited the school.  They arrived on the day of A level results, in the form of David Floyd (66-69C), Piers Rogers (64-69 C), Stephen Hooker (67-70 C) and Michael Hooker (66-69 C). 

It must be noted that the 1960s was a difficult place to be a school boy at West Buckland and for some; it is not a comforting experience to set foot in the place again. 

In the Autumn Term, we had visits from Michael Jackson (56-63 G) and his partner Eunice. Michael had only once been to the school since he left so there were many notable changes and the experience was particularly overwhelming.
