Welcome to our website.  I am sure it will inform you fully about our wonderful school.

We are a small school.

We are a quiet school.

We are a school of high expectations.

Westhaven School is a unique learning environment for children and young people who experience complex barriers to learning for a range of reasons.

In order that we maintain our outstanding status, the whole school community works together in the ‘Westhaven Way’.  This is the golden thread that runs through every school day.  The Westhaven Way is based on our core values:

  • We respect each other.
  • We uphold the school rules.
  • We are polite.
  • We show learning behaviour in every lesson.
  • We have high expectations of ourselves and we are ‘the best that we can be’.

I am extremely proud of the whole school community.  Our parents and carers work with us to support their children on their own personal learning journey.

Our staff are all leaders and maintain high standards and expectations.  They are a powerful team of people with success for our pupils at the core of all their work.

And, of course, our pupils, who represent the school and maintain fantastic outcomes.

A pupil at the end of their education in our school has expectations of success in the future and is a resilient person who is ready to take their place in society.

Zack riding a bike
Zac rides a bike

Lower school pupil Zac Fulton defied all expectations today when he rode round the school playground on a bike with no stabilisers and no help. Zac has only been coming to cycling club for a few weeks and has impairments that we felt might stop him from learning to ride a bike unaided. Despite this, […]

Sports Day 01
Sports Day 2016

Brilliant Barrington! In this instance the alliteration is wholly appropriate. While the scores were close for 2nd and 3d places, there was absolutely no doubt as to the winners of Sports Day 2016. Even the weather got “on-side” as early showers cleared to leave us all dry for the afternoon albeit cold from the strong […]

Beach football
Beach Football

The players were all greeted by torrential rainfall today – so much for our English summer. There were no scenes of hot sun and golden sand to echo the Brazilian roots of beach football. There were however snatches of pure brilliance the likes of which would make even Neymar proud. We don’t usually like to pick […]
