New Website Invites Visitors Inside on VR Journey – West Buckland School

15 May 2019

West Buckland School is delighted to launch an exciting new website, which gives visitors the opportunity to dive in and take a virtual tour through all its outstanding facilities.

Over the past ten years the school has invested enormously in its facilities, and the school’s new website allows visitors to wander through these amazing buildings, having a 360-degree view as if they were there in person! To find out more, visit Visitors interested in our Prep school can also take a trip inside, by visiting

The website is the product of a great deal of work and innovation and, true to the school’s North Devon roots, it is proud to have benefitted from calling on the services of two local companies to do this. Roots Creative, run by former West Buckland students, designed and built the website, whilst Barnstaple-based Panoptic Motion created the virtual tour.

The website highlights the emphasis that the school has placed on wellbeing, the importance of taking education beyond the limitations of the classroom and the strong academic success of the school. In addition, easy-to-access menus show our extensive bus routes from Bideford and Torrington, to Ilfracombe and Tiverton, as well as food menus, news and blog sections, videos and admissions process.

Headmaster, Phillip Stapleton, is delighted with the new site. “Not only does it reflect where West Buckland is in terms of innovation and vision but is a fantastic example of collaboration with state-of-the-art technologies, which are the future for all our children. Hopefully our visitors will enjoy their VR experience!”
