Choice: the theme of National Poetry Day 2021. And it came as no surprise that Westholme students took this theme and ran, or should I say sprinted, with it. Our students never fail to disappoint with their unique creativity.
On Monday 25 October, three of our Sixth Former students will set off on an extraordinary week-long road-trip to visit all 92 professional league football grounds across the UK.
The INSPIRED Sixth Form has been bustling with positivity, enthusiasm and a general excitement for the start of the new academic year.
Coming to the end of the second week after returning to school, there is definitely excitement around with students and staff enjoying being back after the summer break. Everyone is settling back into Westholme way of life with chatter and laughter, filling the corridors once again.
On June 12, Caitlin (who will be continuing into Year 13 in September) competed in the Kyolis Cup, her first international individual competition hosted by France.
Congratulations to all of our A level leavers on all of their hard work this year. You can find out more about what some of our students are doing after their time at Westholme below:
Westholme INSPIRED Sixth Form’s ‘lockdown graduates’ are departing, destination ready, with so much more than outstanding academic results, says Principal Dr Richard Robson.

Congratulations from everyone at Westholme to Eloise, who received an offer to study English and French at the prestigious St Hugh’s College, at Oxford University. Her four-year course will include a year abroad for her third year.
Year 7 and Sixth Form EPR students have been exploring all things Eco in the past few weeks. Lessons have brought to light topical debates and addressed fundamental questions that humans need to face when considering their relationship with the planet.

Congratulations to former pupil Charlotte Cootes, who recently achieved her Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
Today the Sixth Form came together to say farewell to Mrs Horner in a special assembly held in the Croston Theatre.
A special awards ceremony was held in the Lecture Theatre this afternoon for students in Lower Sixth who had not received their GCSE certificates last year in our usual annual awards ceremony, due to Covid-19.
Over the past few weeks, we have held special ‘Mock Interview’ days for students in Year 13 to help them prepare for their future careers.
Congratulations to everyone who has completed their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award in the last 12 months.
