Welcome To Westside School

It is a privilege for me to be the headteacher of Westside School. I welcome you to the school website which will offer you a wealth of information. I lead a team of highly committed teachers and support staff who are dedicated to the progress of all our students They provide ample opportunities for each individual to develop their personal skills, knowledge and qualities and set high expectations, focused on enabling pupils to develop and succeed in an ever-demanding world. 

It is our goal to ensure that our pupils feel valued and respected and we aim to help them acquire a passion for knowledge and a breadth of skills in order to afford them with the best possible learning experience. We believe that they will be leaders in whichever field of work, academic study or indeed personal interests they choose in their future. It is, therefore, our objective to encourage them to aspire to maximise their potential, believe in their capacity to do so and commit to achieve excellent results.  

We have an extremely positive work ethos, with very strong pastoral and academic guidance and a real emphasis on adding value to the Westside learning experience. We believe it is a happy, safe and enjoyable environment and that a positive atmosphere prevails. The opportunities we provide allows students to develop academically, socially and personally into responsible, caring and confident individuals. 

As a school, we strongly promote partnerships working together in the best interest of all our students. This will ensure that our pupils enjoy their learning journey, achieve exceptional results and succeed as aspirational, resilient future leaders.
