Westwood College is at an exciting phase of development, with exam results at both GCSE and Key Stage 3 rising faster than any other school in our area. Students at Westwood are drawn from our local community. They are of all abilities but have one thing in common- they are passionate about all kinds of learning!
In recent years the facilities at Westwood have been remodelled and upgraded to provide for example the latest ICT facilities and science laboratories, but we have not lost the small and friendly family school atmosphere which our students, staff and parents value. Many of our students are second-generation families who can recall through the experiences of their parents, aunts or cousins the former glories of the College. Through these contacts we keep in touch with our graduates, celebrate their achievements and maintain a lively link with the past.
However, we are also a forward thinking institution. Currently we are seeking Science Specialist Status, which will place us at the forefront of science innovation and environmental sciences in Bexley. Working with partner schools at primary and secondary level we will develop courses tailored to meet the needs of students of all ages in our community. This is especially true of vocational, work related courses, which will help our students to become successful in their future lives
I hope you will want to visit us, both on these pages and in reality to see what we have to offer teachers, students and the community at Westwood. I am proud of the achievements of students and staff who have achieved the best ever GCSE results this year, who have made training videos in English for Teacher's TV and video and audio CDs of popular music, written and performed by our students. I am sure that you will be invigorated and delighted by our students' activities, and I look
