Student Testimonials

I joined Westgate recently and and love that there are lots of new subjects as well as finding everything in a large building. My favourite subject is maths because I am learning lots of hard things, Christopher, Year 7.

I have made lots of new friends and enjoyed meeting lots of teachers and doing subjects I have not studied before. My favourite subject is Art and I like the different types of painting, Keya, Year 7.

Parent Testimonial

I’ve had 3 daughters attend The Westgate School, all of them were unique but I was impressed with the amount of support tailored to their specific needs. One of my daughters is now studying Marine Biology at Plymouth University which the school helped her through her A-Levels and gave her the confidence, encouragement and self-belief to follow her dreams. My youngest daughter has embraced all of the extra-curricular provisions including playing the drums which allowed her to perform in concerts and an amazing chance to perform with a live orchestra in the ‘Busgy’ production. She has also represented the school with athletics at county level and played on the girls football team which gives the opportunity to play at county level. She is currently studying Music and PE at GCSE Level. Westgate has a fabulous Design and Technology department which allows them to study Engineering at GCSE which my daughter is one of 2 girls that have now embraced this fantastic challenge the team has now encouraged her continue her love for engineering for the apprenticeship route, Miss. Mason.
