Like many schools during the Second World War, Buckland School had its own air raid shelter. It was of a very basic design, consisting of little more than a trench, with arched ceilings (supposed to provide greater structural strength) and topped with reinforced concrete. While the shelter would have afforded school pupils and staff some measure of protection, it was too basic and shallow to have withstood a direct hit.
