Following their short inspection in February 2019, Ofsted recognised Westwood College as a ‘welcoming, friendly school.

They develop a strong sense of equality and fairness.’ Teaching was noted as being ‘engaging and creative in many subject areas, which motivates most students to work hard and achieve well. The quality of students’ work in many cases is extremely high.’
