Why are we building a Study Centre? In over 150 years West Buckland School has never had a purpose-built space for learning resources and individual study. Now, we have an exciting project to build a state-of-the-art Study Centre that will be central to students’ independent learning for many years. It will spur and inspire students, enhance academic performance and give young people opportunities to develop life-long skills. The IT resources in the study centre will benefit every pupil in the Senior School, across the whole curriculum. The separation of study and social spaces will help pupils to focus on their work in an environment akin to university. Top study facilities and comfortable, modern social areas will mean that young people will have something to take ownership of. They will see a fully equipped Higher Education and Careers space, ready for them to make use of to plan their next steps. They will be able to benefit from lessons in the new study centre within two designated classrooms. They will be able to enjoy a bespoke designed learning space, equipped for their needs.
