We are delighted that you are considering West Hill School for your child. Choosing the right school is one of the most important decisions you will make.
From the moment you walk through the doors at West Hill Primary School, you can feel the passion for learning, a willingness to embrace new challenges and a clear nurturing ethos.
At West Hill the happiness and success of each child is of paramount importance to us. We are a school where every child is valued as an individual and each child is encouraged to do their very best by taking part in a wide range of exciting creative learning experiences.
Our approach to learning means that West Hill pupils make excellent progress and achieve high results, yet they are also compassionate, confident individuals who are ready to take on the challenges of life. At the heart of everything we do at West Hill is a ‘can do’ attitude. We never say we ‘can’t do’ something, we say ‘we can’t do it yet’.
Our talented staff at West Hill school are dedicated to delivering an imaginative and rich curriculum. All learning uses an ‘enquiry approach’ and starts with questions and the individual curiosity of the child. At West Hill the programme of activities is planned to challenge children and engage them in their learning whether it be academic, sporting, artistic, or musical. In mathematics our learning is based on a ‘mastery approach’ where children truly understand and ‘master’ the core mathematical concepts. In English our learning is based on a ‘Talk for writing approach’ where children read, hear and perform stories and other genre of texts before they learn to write them.
The sense of cooperation and ‘can do attitude’ filters down from the leadership model in our school. We have a co-Headship model at West Hill; Lisa Carmen and Anna Healy share the role of Headteacher. It is our pleasure and privilege to lead this vibrant community school where daily we are impressed by the achievements, effort and love of learning that the children display. We took on the shared role of Headteacher in September 2018 and our vision is to build a high achieving, happy, vibrant and forward-thinking school where all children excel both academically and socially. We have high standards and expect the best.
If you are seeking a vibrant, creative environment where your child can truly reach their true potential then please come and visit West Hill Primary School. We hold regular Open Days throughout the year to welcome prospective parents. Each Open Day offers a presentation and the opportunity to tour the school and speak to staff.
