About Us

As part of the schools broader role within the City, we are a member of the Leicester Education Inclusion Partnership (EIP) of Secondary schools, the City of Leicester Association of Special Schools (CLASS) and The Alliance for Learning in Leicester. In September 2012 we became a Trust school by joining the Well Trust, in partnership with several other educational institutes across the country.

The school opened in 2006 following the merger of two former special schools, Emily Fortey and Piper Way, and was situated on a split site on Glenfield Road in West Leicester. The school has just moved into a new state of the art building.  We have a large Warm Water Pool, an Immersive Room, Soft Play, Rebound Therapy Room, Physio Room, Music  and Sensory Room as well as large classrooms with built in one to one work rooms. We also have a Learning Centre based at New College Leicester. The Learning Centre was opened in 2011 with a focus on providing life skills and employability for our older students students. The school is a vibrant, friendly and welcoming community with a strong positive ethos. We have a skilled and dedicated staff team who are deeply committed to providing the best possible education and care for all our pupils.

New School Build

Building Schools for the Future (BSF) is an exciting programme that has helped transform secondary and special educational needs schools in Leicester.

The Department for Children, Schools and Families has provided Leicester City Council with money to rebuild or renew these schools. The aim was to provide students with 21st century learning environments and to make Leicester a good place to learn.

West Gate School is one of the schools that has been transformed.
