My decision to continue my education at Westgate was a simple one. I already had strong relationships with the teachers and I was confident in their ability to teach and help me reach my potential. Back when I was in Year 11, the current sixth form students at that time also supported this by telling me of their own positive experiences within the school and in specific subjects which helped to confirm my decision to continue at Westgate. Malek, Year 12.
I decided to come to Westgate because the teachers are very supportive and friendly towards the students. I have studied here for 5 years and the teachers were always happy to help whenever I had a problem. The people I have also met in my classes were all a joy to have around and supported each other with homework or classwork. The journey has been educational and exciting, and I wish to continue it into sixth form. Pema, Year 12.

Having attended The Westgate School Sixth Form, I have nothing but positive feedback about all aspects of teaching, assessment, environment, and standards. Throughout my time there, including the former years, I received unwavering encouragement and support from teachers, enabling me to achieve the best of my ability. I took a few years break from education and now I am studying Biological Sciences at University of Kent as well as working for an internationally recognised pharmaceutical company in early scientific research. I am sure, should you choose to study at The Westgate School, you will have an unmatchable experience, Mahnoor A.
My name is Puja I went to Westgate from Year 7 all the way to 6th Form and left in the Summer of 2010. The subjects I went onto study in my final two years at the school included English Literature, Food Technology and Psychology – all of which were taught by excellent teachers who were very supportive and provided guidance when needed. I then went on to study International Business at Kingston University , the journey for me didn’t follow the norm and wasn’t as straight forward as I would have liked it to be, and at the time it seemed like the end of the world. However, today I see that wasn’t the case and it is perfectly okay if your path takes a slightly different direction. Now, I work as a Quantity Surveyor and have recently completed my Masters while working in my full time job. I would like to sincerely thank the teachers at the school who had always given me their time, attention and advice whenever I needed it, even after I left, Puja S.
One of the reasons I decided to stay at Westgate is the sixth form offers the subjects I wished to study. I have come to the school all the way through from year seven and have made friends and enjoyed and know the school is a good school with facilities and the teachers being very helpful, Gurjeet M.
I decided to stay in Westgate because I have been going here for six years and therefore I trust the school. I also wanted to give back. They also had all the subjects I wanted to do (History, Psychology and BTEC Business), Henrique.
I decided to come to Westgate for sixth form and I had heard good things around the community. I felt that the ethos of the school matched my needs and were suitable for me, Rehan.
I came back to Westgate as I found the teachers to be encouraging and to push us forward to achieve the best you can. I also love the environment as it is very friendly, Bilal.
