“I would like to say a couple of words about Buckswood School. Buckswood is a family of many nations, more than 50! Buckswood makes me feel safe because I have a Buckswood family supporting me. In Buckswood, I live in one of the boarding houses. We have a Housemaster who is the main wall of our house. We also have support walls who help us. I love Buckswood because it is a friendly place where you can do so many things. I want to invite you to come and join our building.” (School House, Junior Boarder)

If you come, you will make string friendships that last forever. You will be able to do this as you can go on many trips over the weekends or in the half term holidays.
