A welcome from the Headteacher!

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 respected status in the community, 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.


Personal letter from Sir David Frederick Attenborough

In Year 10 English lessons we were doing letter writing. Liam Y. wrote to David Attenborough who promptly responded by hand!!! Amazing! Liam should put the original in a frame and hang it on his wall – a personal letter from one of the most well known and loved people on the planet!


Seven pupils from Lower school were identified as able to try for their L1 Bikeability qualifications. The weather forecast for Wednesday 13th, the original date for the course, looked really bad so the date was changed to the 15th. Bruno, Ronnie, Zack H, Jamie, Gracjan, Luke S and Oscar will brave the wintry conditions with […]

Remembrance day
Remembrance day

Tomorrow is Remembrance Day so today we had a short ceremony to remember the people who have died in wars. Pupils and staff lined up on the playground and a two-minute silence was held at 11am. After that we paid our respects by placing a poppy in the heart drawn on the pavement. Thank you to all the pupils […]
