I believe that our single most important attribute is  a clear sense of purpose or mission shared by parents, students, staff and the school’s board of governors. Our college is committed to achieving a level of excellence that ensures the success of every student. Ensuring the success of every student requires students who are responsive to learning, staff who are committed to the success of all students, and all parents to be supportive of the educational process. We recognise that each young person is an individual; that all students are creative; that all students need to succeed. Therefore, Westwood College respects the individual needs of its young people; fosters a caring and creative environment; and emphasises the social, emotional, physical, intellectual development of each young person. As an integral part of the local community, we apply strong moral values to everything we do in college and our daily work seeks to help our students to grow morally, culturally and spiritually. Ultimately our aim is to create a happy, caring and co-operative college community that celebrates learning in all of its forms.

Our mission is to support and enable all of our learners to believe in themselves, to succeed in life and to aspire to be all that they can be.
