Dr E Riley
It is my great pleasure to welcome my new year group into Year 8.
I was lucky enough to get to know them all through the Academic Enrichment programme last year and I also taught many of them for History. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching them and I am very much looking forward to looking after their pastoral needs. I look forward to meeting parents during the year too and being able to share Westholme’s wonderful family atmosphere with you all.
Here at school, we are particularly excited to be able to invite Year 8 to take part in a full co-curricular programme this year now that Covid restrictions have been largely lifted. I would encourage the students to join a wide range of clubs and societies so that they can benefit from all that Westholme’s holistic education has to offer. I hope too that they will be able to enjoy a wide variety of school trips and learning experiences. Academic progress and achievement are always amongst our main priorities and I will be supporting the assessment and reporting process throughout the year.
I am fortunate to be supported by a very experienced and enthusiastic form tutor team. They should be the first port of call for students and, on occasions, for parents if you have any concerns. If a matter is more serious or worrying, please feel free to contact me immediately and together we will look to solve any problems that are being encountered.
