A Welcome From The Headteacher

Westhaven School is a specialist school, and a unique environment, for children and young people who experience complex barriers to learning. We support up to 188 learners aged between 4 and 18 years.

Our school community, supported by a dedicated governing body, is committed to providing each learner with a positive and fulfilling educational experience from the moment they join the school until they leave. In order that we maintain our respected status in the community, all stakeholders work together in the ‘Westhaven Way’. This is the golden thread that binds us together.

Our vision

  • Valued — Inspired – Prepared

Our values

We shape our learners to be:

  • Safely independent
  • Confident communicators
  • Respectful citizens
  • Resilient learners
  • Inquisitive thinkers

We are all extremely proud of our school, the achievements and outcomes of our learners and the expertise and professionalism of our staff. We understand how important choosing the right school is and so we would like to extend an invitation to visit our school and experience the unique and family atmosphere and the quality of education that we offer.
