We pride ourselves on building confident, educated, well-rounded individuals, who boast a full portfolio of real world experience, coupled with the qualifications that will best fit their abilities and get them ahead in life.


Each Buckswood Sixth Former receives personal one-to-one guidance on selecting the right course subjects for their desired university course and opportunities to build extra UCAS points through an extensive programme of wider curricular activities.
