Welcome to Westlands School

Welcome to Westlands School. If you are reading this message on our website, I would strongly advise you to come and visit us so that you can see for yourself what a great school we have. Westlands School is based on a tradition of success in terms of high achievement, a caring approach to our students, and in providing opportunities for all. Whatever your background, learning needs, gifts and talents, we believe we can offer all students a chance to do well, both with regard to their learning and in preparation for adulthood. As a large school we have facilities to appeal to students who are academic, creative, and practical. There really is something for everybody. Find out more here.

Ski Trip 2017

Following previous successful trips organised by Westlands School, we are now looking forward to winter 2017 and we are very excited to offer your child a once in a lifetime ski trip to the USA.

Your child will learn to ski in the fabulous resorts of Loon and Cannon Mountain, New Hampshire during the February Half Term holidays in 2017.

We will be staying at the Indian Head Resort with spectacular views from modern and spacious rooms and take a dip in the indoor or year round heated outdoor pool! Further to this we are also going to spend one night in New York City!

For more information please contact Miss Winstanley.

  • 19-09-2016 - Open Evening - Thursday 29 September

    Open Evening takes place on Thursday 29 September 2016 and we look forward to seeing as many parents and year 6 pupils as possible.

    There will be two presentations - 6pm and 6.45pm as well as the opportunity to look around the school and speak with staff.

    Tours of the school are also available on our Open Mornings which run from 3 - 14 October. Please call the school on 01795 477 475 to book.

     

  • 15-09-2016 - SCHOOL CLOSURE - Friday 16 September 2016

    Unfortunately due to a significant problem with the school's water supplies, the school will be without water for the whole of Friday 16 September.

    Obviously I cannot run a school of 1700 pupils and 150 staff without water. Therefore I have had to take the decision to close the school to ALL pupils and the vast majority of my staff. The wellbeing of your child comes first.

    Sixth Form pupils who have lessons at SCC are still expected to attend those lessons and they can work at SCC during the course of the day. However, there will be no minibus transport to and from Westlands.

    I realise that closing the school at such short notice is difficult for parents in terms of care for your children. Therefore I have taken the decision to open the school on Friday 25 November which would have otherwise been a Staff Development Day. This will ensure no child loses out on any learning.

    The school will definitely be open on Monday 19 September.

    Kind regards

    Mr S Cox

    Headteacher

  • 15-09-2016 - IMPORTANT INFORMATION
