No two days are ever the same at Buckswood! You may find yourself side-stepping a peacock, accommodating a visiting group, welcoming a school guest to your classroom or occasionally just being able to get on and teach! Your Buckswood survival kit should contain a pair of wellies, torch and a pair of thermals for the winter months, so in short be ready for anything and surprised at nothing.


Here is a brief outline of the day to day happenings. Remember you are responsible for setting the correct tone on the campus where manners are everything. Buckle up and enjoy the ride.
