About West Park School

It has been my privilege to lead this remarkable school for twenty one years.

Parents send their children to West Park because they know that they will achieve; teachers want to work at West Park because they can get on and do their job. Pupils are proud to attend West Park because they know that we put them and their achievement first.

The attainment and progress of pupils at West Park is truly outstanding; the really good news is that this is not the whole story.
