Welcome to Westlands School
Welcome to our school. Here at Westlands we are determined to do our best to ensure that your child receives the best possible quality of education.
For the past few years the school has gained recognition in the community and from Ofsted for the outstanding quality of education we provide across the ability range.
Our pastoral system here at Westlands is simply second to none. We will do all within our power to ensure that all of our pupils feel safe and secure throughout their school life.
Westlands is a school that embodies a set of traditional values built upon mutual respect and hard work. We welcome all pupils and parents who subscribe to these values.
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.
