Westside is an outstanding provision with a strong academic base and an ethos of an individually-focused nurturing environment which allows those who were previously disengaged with mainstream school to flourish.’

We are a warm, supportive and inclusive community welcoming pupils of all backgrounds and abilities. Whilst every pupil has their own story of why they have come to us, at Westside every pupil starts with a clean slate and our focus is solely on what they do next. We seek to re-build their confidence and resilience and give them the tools they need to embark on the next chapter of their lives.
