Welcome to Westwood Academy

Westwood Academy is a primary school for children that welcomes pupils aged from 2 to 11.  We aim to provide an education where the individual child defines everything we do. We hope that our website provides a sense of our school values, and the aspirations we have for the pupils in our care.  Please explore to learn more about our school or contact us to arrange a visit – we love to welcome visitors.

Open Mornings for 2020 Reception intake.

For 2020 Reception intake, we have two open mornings for parents to come and visit.  These will be held on:-

  • 8th October 2019.
  • 6th November 2019.

Due to very high numbers of visitors last year, this year will see an appointment system used.  Each open morning will have two sessions running from 9:30-10:15 and 10:45-11:30.  This will hopefully reduce waiting times for prospective parents, and be less disruptive to pupils.  If you would like to visit, please call the office on 01702 559467 to secure an appointment.  Appointments will be given on a first come, first served basis and in the interest of fairness, please attend only one of the sessions.

Spaces at Westwood.

We are currently full and have no spaces.  Please contact the office if you would like to be added to our waiting list.

Please note that the cost of admissions appeals are paid for by the school, which means that less resources for pupils can be bought.
