A Message from the Principal

mrs lynne m horner - principal

I am often asked what it is that makes Westholme different from other schools. The answer lies in our shared values and a relaxed but vibrant atmosphere, where children come first.

The Westholme ethos is firmly built on personal relationships, on respectful informality and on a strong belief that the individual, every individual, is at the heart of all we do. Our school gives people, staff and students, the space to be themselves and the encouragement to learn enthusiastically, to embrace challenge and to achieve their goals. Academic achievement and personal growth are at the centre of our aims. We place great importance upon personal and character development; friendship, respect, tolerance and compassion are significant in Westholme life.

We are proud of our school and especially the people here; the children and the staff. Our success is not only evident in academic achievements through exam results, but also through our diverse co-curricular programme. We value our relationship with parents highly and also the role we have as the independent coeducational school of choice in our community.
