The Buchan School aims to help each individual child achieve their full potential in a stimulating and supportive learning environment, whether their talents are academic, creative or lie in the field of Sport.
We endeavour to provide a broad range of opportunities for all our pupils, not only within the classroom, but also by taking full advantage of the 13.5 acres of partially wooded grounds in the heart of which our School buildings are set.
At the Buchan you will find a community buzzing with happy children developing lively, independent and enquiring minds, guided and encouraged by specialist teaching staff throughout the curriculum.
Our aim is to take every opportunity to enhance the learning of our pupils of all abilities in the classroom and outside it. This is at the core of our programmes for enrichment.
We have a wide and varied after school programme which your child can take part in until 4:30pm each evening. Activities include a range of Sports, Music and Drama, along with bee-keeping, minecraft, touch typing and classical civilisations
We have an optional Breakfast Club from 8am and an After-school Club to 5.30pm. There are also Clubs during the School holidays.
The rationale of the House system is to encourage leadership, responsibility, involvement, loyalty, co-operation and good discipline amongst all students.
They learn, they have fun, they always want to go back. children love this school.James P
