Welcome to Westfield House

Jo Murray

Welcome from the Head Teacher

I am pleased and proud to welcome you to Westfield House school. We are a small school which effectively supports children through their educational journey. Our students may have previously experienced significant and prolonged periods of disengagement and/or disaffection in their education. This may have impacted negatively upon their previous levels of achievement and motivation to succeed at school.

We are committed to making sure that all students learn and are engaged in a meaningful and worthwhile education, which provides them with the means to enjoy achievement, success, and increased independence. I have an amazing, resourceful and dedicated team of staff who work with everyone to ensure that school becomes a place that children want to be at.


Our key focus is on promoting self confidence, developing independence, providing firm, fair & consistent boundaries, supporting effective & meaningful communication.

We aim to support each individual to achieve their aspirations both academically and socially. The students are at the centre of all of the schools plans and decisions

What sets us apart from other schools
