Why West Lodge School?
There are many good schools in the area so, why West Lodge?
One of the distinctive features of our school is its size. West Lodge is a small school with one class per year group and a maximum of 22 children in each class which enables us to give each child the individual attention that they need in order to thrive in the formative years in their education.
Our dedicated staff know each and every child and this enables us to provide the personal touch we all want for our children. Although a city school, West Lodge has the unique feel of that archetypal village school, but at the same time children have access to a wide range of opportunities with an emphasis upon technology. It is our firm belief that through this breadth of opportunity every child will be able to find subjects they love and can excel in.
As Head it is my firm belief that every child is uniquely gifted and the size and ethos of our school enables us to first discover a child’s talents and then make the most of them. It is an exciting journey for the children and hugely rewarding for us to see them develop into happy, rounded young adults.
Whilst providing a nurturing and warm environment for the children, they are challenged to fulfil their potential and empowered by our growth mindset philosophy. This approach ensures that children develop into confident, rounded and engaging young people who have the skills to embrace all of the opportunities available to them in their future lives. We are also rightly proud of the excellent results our children achieve and their record of securing places at highly selective senior schools.
