West Hill is a welcoming, inclusive community school with children who thrive, a committed staff and a dedicated Governing Body.
We offer school places from Nursery (aged 3) through to year 6 (age 11).
We are a one form entry school so we have one class per year group.
In Key Stage One (Year 1 and Year 2) each class has a maximum of 30 children. The nursery has a maximum of 16 children and is open all day.
The nursery and reception class have a full-time teacher along with teaching assistants. Each class in years 1 – 6 have full-time teachers and a teaching assistant every morning. Some classes also have learning support assistants who support children with a statement of special educational needs.
