Field Calculator- Delete last 3 text characters

I have postcodes which I need to cut down from say BN14 5RY to only BN14. I cannot simply use the 'left(input, n)' equation as some postcodes are only 6 figures long such as BN1 5RY and I always need the first 3/4 characters.

Does anyone know a way to delete the last 3 characters?

Thanks in advance.
