100 Years of Westholme

We are delighted to celebrate our centenary year with a variety of events and warmly invite all friends, past and present to join us in our celebrations. From a series of Alumni Centenary Lunches hosted by Mrs Croston (Principal 1988 – 2013), to a Centenary Ball, Party Night and Centenary Concert, we do hope you can join us celebrate 100 wonderful years of Westholme.

In our 100th year, we are pleased to launch our Centenary Pledge which aims to provide the gift of education for future generations. Through our pledge, we are committed to giving access to a Westholme School education to talented and enthusiastic young people.

The values that were set by our founder, Miss Emily Singleton, are still woven into the fabric of our fantastic school today, contributing to innovative educational excellence in Lancashire and leading the way as the top educational provider. Our commitment is to continue to provide a first-class, holistic education essential for Westholmians to thrive in the 21st century workplace. A spectacular large-scale exhibition has been created to showcase our heritage in the foyer of the Croston Theatre, highlights of which can be viewed in the section below.

Further information about our Celebratory Events, History and Pledge can be found below.
