Next year Westgate will celebrate 60 years.  As part of these anniversary celebrations, we are hoping to fundraise £10,000 to buy:

  • two new wheelchairs for our physically impaired pupils in PE
  • a new sensory garden to run alongside the new build for our students who need a quiet space to support their wellbeing

The Westgate staff team consists of Ms Rose, Mrs Cooper, Ms Bown, Miss Bicknell and Miss Hughes.  The aim of this challenge is to climb Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon within 24 hours.  This includes both walking time and travel between the peaks – approximately 13 hours of hill walking (23 miles with an ascent of 10,052ft) and 11 hours of driving (462 miles).  They have been training incredibly hard for this challenge, under the watchful eye of Mr Crossingham.  To sponsor the staff, and help us with our fundraising efforts, please click on the link below:
