The Buckswood School Difference

Respect, Tradition, Integrity and Honour.

The legend beneath the regal lions adorning Buckswood’s coat of arms reads: “Ad Vitam Paramus” or “We are Preparing For Life”.

But what sort of life do we want for our children, and what skills will they need in order to be successful? At Buckswood we recognise that every scholar is an individual, born with a unique set of talents and abilities. The net of opportunity is cast so wide that as talent is discovered it is nurtured and cultivated, so that every scholar’s potential is fully realised. We want each child to be able to stand up on his or her own two feet and be able to tackle any situation and they must learn that life is not a computer game. This is achieved through our dedicated staff, who understand that teaching at Buckswood is a calling, a vocation but not just not a job.

Buckswood does not recognise the concept of the average pupil; there is no box-ticking template to be followed here, because every scholar will be treated differently, with an education tailored to his or her own aptitude. Buckswood’s small class sizes, expert subject specialists and the uniquely inspiring environment, come together to produce an educational experience unlike any other.

Buckswood instils a can-do spirit of adventure in its scholars who are willing to try something new, understanding that failure is not to be feared, knowing that new experiences make for richer people. A wealth of stimulating and thought-provoking activities and opportunities are complemented by traditional classroom studies. The Buckswood approach opens the mind and produces well-rounded and interesting individuals – Learners Today, Leaders Tomorrow.

When your child becomes a Buckswoodian, he or she is joining a long heritage where some of the traditional values and manners are as important as academic rigour. A scholar’s first year at Buckswood is spent as a Buck, learning the Buckswood ways, the customs, and taking on roles of responsibility. Scholars address staff as ‘Sir’ or ‘Ma’am’; will rise from their seats when any adult enters the room; will greet you with a cheerful “Good morning” and learn to look others in the eye and have a firm handshake. In a world where these standards are notable by their absence, at Buckswood they form part of the rhythm of everyday life. Deportment and decorum are essential life skills that the Buckswoodian learns at the school.

Every situation calls for and teaches scholars the behaviour that will serve them in the future. From impeccable manners in the dining hall, to speaking correctly and presenting ones self elegantly and with confidence, the Buckswoodian thrives and is comfortable in any social setting.

Following English public school tradition, prefects and staff wear gowns and every scholar wears their uniform with pride and a sense of honour. The scholars join together at the end of every week for the school assembly, which takes place in the nearby Guestling church, a tiny architectural gem almost a thousand years old. The school bagpipe master and band lead the procession of prefects and staff for a service of music, thought-provoking speeches, sports results and commendations. The Buckswood Family celebrates its successes together every week.

The school will have done its job if scholars leave being able to hold their own in a discussion at any level and to appreciate the diversity of life within the global community.

A Buckswood education teaches scholars not only to be confident but also to be persuasive and impressive in a public forum; to be leaders rather than mere followers. Buckswood scholars strive to stand out in a crowd, being comfortable in their own skin and without feeling the need to fit into a particular box. Success is the only outcome.
