Welcome from the Principal

Thank you for showing an interest in Westwood High. This is a very exciting time for our whole school community. We recently celebrated yet another year of exceptionally high GCSE results. Our end of Key Stage 1 SATs results were also very promising. This is testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff, students, parents and governors over the last few years.

The school has grown and evolved a great deal since we first opened our doors in February 2012. We are now a full Secondary School for girls and Sixth form. Our Early Years and Foundation Stage provision recently relocated to a newly refurbished site. The Primary phase now has Year 1 to Year 4 classes with a view to becoming a full Primary School over the coming years.

School leaders and governors are always looking to improve our educational offer. We are working in partnership with leading schools in the North West to continue improving attainment and our overall learning experience.

You will be happy to know that two of our unqualified teachers have recently achieved Qualified Teacher Status through the Assessment Only route accredited by a regional Teacher Training provider. Four of our NQTs completed their induction with us through Oldham Council and an additional five staff are completing their induction at present.

We have forged strong partnerships with local providers to further enhance the continued professional development of our staff which includes the Oldham College and Brighter Beginnings who have supported our Early Years practitioners.

Our most recent Ofsted report recognised the hard work of all members of our school community. We are humbled by such a promising report. The Inspector noted: “when pupils leave Westwood High, they are fully prepared for their next steps. They are principled, confident and full of enthusiasm”.

We will continue to work very closely with parents, partners and key stakeholders to ensure that your child is safe and equipped with the skills needed to make the right choices in life.

Please spare a few moments to browse our website and allow us to share some of our wonderful achievements.
