Westlands School

Based on a tradition of excellent exam results, a wide and varied curriculum and two previous 'Outstanding' OFSTED judgements, the school is oversubscribed and has gained an enviable reputation in the wider community. Westlands School is a mixed, 11-18, non-selective school and is one of the most popular in the county. 

Our curriculum provides impressive breadth, which we are proud of, this means that students can study academic courses alongside a wide choice of arts, technology and other vocational subjects. We have an enhanced range of extra-curricular activities, which we believe provides enrichment as well as developing students’ character.

Westlands is particularly proud of the fact that it focuses on students of all abilities making exceptional levels of progress, particularly in the key skills of literacy and numeracy.

The headteacher and senior leaders lead the school with passion and determination. Staff strongly support leaders’ vision.

Hard-working leaders at all levels demonstrate passion and resilience.
