Welcome to The Buchan School, the Isle of Man’s only independent preparatory school.

We are a happy and lively school nestled in 13.5 acres of beautiful grounds, to ensure that your child can make the most of learning both inside and outside the classroom.

Our curriculum is unique: from a strong focus upon Academics, Art, Music, Drama and a range of Sports. Our Buchan Badge programme takes a modular approach to a range of exciting skills, including horse riding, sailing and cookery.

Our pupils are guided by subject specialist teachers throughout the curriculum to ensure that they reach and exceed their potential. We ensure that our class sizes are small so that we can meet the individual needs of each child.

We also have a wide and varied after school programme which your child can take part in until 4:30pm each evening. Activities include a range of Sports, Music and Drama, along with bee-keeping, minecraft, touch typing and classical civilisations.

Our children are happy and inquisitive; they learn how to think and to solve problems. They develop skills which will enable them to become the adult they wish to be, to be prepared for life.

If you would like to find out more, I would be delighted to welcome you to our School and show you what makes The Buchan School so special: come and visit us soon!

With my best wishes,



Janet Billingsley-Evans,

Head of The Buchan School,
