Based on a tradition of excellent exam results, a wide and varied curriculum and two previous 'Outstanding' OFSTED judgements, the school is oversubscribed and has gained an enviable reputation in the wider community. Westlands School is a mixed, 11-18, non-selective school and is one of the most popular in the county.
Our curriculum provides impressive breadth, which we are proud of, this means that students can study academic courses alongside a wide choice of arts, technology and other vocational subjects.
