Westholme’s Inspection Report, March 2012


The Governors of Westholme School are pleased to announce that ”˜all aspects of our pupils’ personal development are excellent’, according to independent school inspectors.  The findings of the inspection, which was conducted across the first week of February, were very positive, with every aspect of Westholme’s provision being rated ”˜excellent’ or ”˜good’.


The pastoral support and the extensive extra-curricular offering were both highlighted; this very effectively illustrates Westholme’s genuine desire to care for the whole child.   The inspectors noted how well our teachers know the pupils and the strength of the relationships between them. The well planned and engaging teaching was also recognised, and the high quality staff team who provide this is noted as an asset of the School in the report.


Principal, Lillian Croston said, “This is a really affirmative report for pupils, parents and staff. It clearly shows that we are fulfilling our stated aim: to ensure every pupil in our care realises to the full his or her own aptitudes, abilities and qualities.  I was delighted to see how impressed the inspection team was with our relationships at all levels within Westholme and our strong academic performance, where all our pupils perform well above national standards. It demonstrates what we know here; when children are happy, they learn well. Encouragingly, there are several mentions of progress that the School has made since our last Inspection in 2007. We will take their further recommendations on board to ensure that Westholme maintains its position, providing the very best holistic educational experience for children in the area.”
