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.

23-11-2015 - Swale Sixth Form Taster Day - Thursday 10 December 2015
We will be holding a Swale Sixth Form taster day for all Year 11 pupils across both Westlands and Sittingbourne Community College. The aim of the day is to help pupils experience subjects they may wish to study in the sixth form.
The taster day will be held on both sites - we will be providing transport when the pupils need to move across from one site to another and return to their home school at the end of the day.
Pupils will be expected to wear smart business clothes to school on that day which is still a compulsory school day.
Whilst we appreciate not all Year 11 pupils intend to progress into our Swale Sixth Form they will still be required to attend this day. If they are hoping to go to college we would recommend that they select subjects similar to those they will be applying for elsewhere.
There will also be some Level 2 vocational choices available for those pupils who wish to follow that pathway.
This taster day is to enable our pupils to make an informed choice regarding their sixth form options and should be seen as an opportunity to experience different subjects they may wish to specialise in next year.
Forms need to be completed and returned to Miss Bridges (Westlands) or Mrs Noble (Sittingbourne Community College) by Thursday 26 November.
