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.
This week the parents of our new Year 7 students were given a warm Westholme welcome to Wilmar Lodge. The evening was a great opportunity for our parents to meet our wonderful teachers and get to know each other as their children embark on this stage of their educational journey.
Last weekend William Grundy represented the North West Region at the British Triathlon Inter- Regional National Championships at Mallory Park Race Circuit, Leicestershire placing 5th!
What a Wonderful A-‘fayre’!
On Wednesday 15 September 2021, students from Years 7 – 10 experienced the school’s first co- curricular fayre, hosted in the sports hall.
Welcome back and we hope you have had a restful break from school runs, pick ups and generally taxi-ing. Some of you will have seen myself, Neil and other WA members at the Prep School ‘Meet The Teacher’ event on Wednesday and are more aware of what we do. We hope to meet many more of you at future events like the Year 7 ‘Welcome to Westholme’ evening and the Open Evening in October.
It has been absolutely wonderful to welcome Year 6 back into the classroom. It has been a delight to watch the pupils welcome new members of the school family into their class and there has been a real sense of belonging and teamwork already show in the class.
Dear Westholme Family,
We hope you have enjoyed a lovely summer break and are very much looking forward to returning to school next Monday. I am writing to let you know that Charity Summer Arts Festival scheduled for the 11 September 2021 will no longer take place as planned.
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.
