As part of the Careers provision at Westholme, I organise a biennial Careers Convention in school where industry professionals are invited to talk with students about careers in their field of work.
In the last year, the Westholme Association have been unable to hold any events such as the Spring and Christmas Fairs, Balls and termly Uniform Sales.
Westholme are delighted to be working with Little Voices to provide children from our Junior School with an After School programme of Musical Theatre lessons and LAMDA exams.
Year 4 were excited to take part in Easter orienteering yesterday to end their map work topic in geography this term.
At the Prep School, our focus for the rest of this term is ‘fun’, and what a lot of fun we have been having!
Local ‘lockdown walks’ have recently become an important part of our daily lives.
For over 200 years, the UK has taken a census of its population every 10 years.
The Maths department are very proud of our Year 10 pupils who took part in the North West Maths Feast Competition on Tuesday 16th March.
Hardly a week has gone by throughout the Covid-19 pandemic without there being something topical for us to discuss in Business & Economics and this week has been no exception.
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.
World Book Day is always special for everyone at Westholme; we get to share our love of books. And this year was no exception: Westholme students have learned how to escape the shackles of lockdown through the enjoyment of some brilliant books.
This half of term, our lockdown learning has continued live each day on Teams with our varied timetable and day to day lessons.

With their batteries recharged during February half term, on Monday 22 February, Year 6 pupils ‘returned’ to school with such energy and enthusiasm. Keen to engage in their lessons this week the children have covered a wide range of topics. Below is just a taste of what they have been experiencing in class.
Despite the current COVID-19 restrictions being in place, as a school we did not want the children to miss out on the experience of competing in our annual Year 6 House Public Speaking competition.
At Westholme School we have a number of students who ride horses, both competitively and just for fun.
We are so excited to let you know all about learning this half of term. We have worked incredibly hard and know Mrs Sutcliffe is proud of each and everyone of us and that she is also so thankful for having a class of wonderful, supportive parents too.
Music has continued to play an important part throughout the primary years during our lockdown learning. Pre School have been learning songs about the wintery weather and about what we need to wear to be warm during these cold months. We’ve also been singing songs about Chinese New Year and trying to add actions so that we move like the Chinese lion and dragon as they parade through the streets bringing good luck for the new year ahead.

In Year 1 the children have been learning all about the Polar Regions and historical explorers. Two weeks ago we hot seated Ernest Shackleton.
