Beyond the formal curriculum


Westwood is extremely proud of its sporting successes over the years.

Regularly among the best in the county for all team sports, 2017-18 has seen our students county champions in  female football, male rugby, …………

In addition we have individuals who go on to major national and international successes. Anna Watkins and Lee Pearson both gold medal Olympians were both students at Westwood.

The PE department currently offer a programme of sporting activities for all students to get involved in, including multi-gym, badminton, netball, hockey, football and table tennis. Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for regular updates of which sports will be taking place and when.
