Principal's Message

A message from our Principal

Thank you for visiting the website of Westlands Academy, a specialist SEMH secondary Academy

Students are at the centre of everything that we do at Westlands Academy. We strongly believe that student well-being is a key element in developing our learning community and we work with a wide range of external agencies to ensure that our students are safe within and outside of school. We value our positive relationships with parents and carers and work hard to ensure we provide the support and guidance that our students require.

The values expressed in the school motto, Forward Together, reflect our shared aim of providing opportunities for all students to reach their full potential. Many of our students will face hurdles and barriers during their time at Westlands but we will provide a supportive yet challenging environment to help student flourish. When students leave Westlands, we want to ensure that we have provided them with the skills, knowledge and resilience they need to live an independent, safe and fulfilling life. This is done through a broad and balanced curriculum that is adapted so that students are able to experience the offer at their own level of ability.

I hope you find the information that you need here, plus more besides. If you still have a query, please do contact us, using the details below and visitors are also very welcome – come and see what we do
