Learning for Life

Welcome to West Gate School

I am delighted to be the headteacher of West Gate School. 

Our pupils are inspiring, articulate, funny, intelligent, caring, sincere, warm, energetic and teachers of incredible life lessons.  They also have moderate to severe learning difficulties, autism spectrum conditions, profound and multiple learning difficulties and highly complex needs. 

West Gate is a popular, over-subscribed setting for 4 – 19 year olds with a range of learning difficulties and disabilities.  We pride ourselves on being a highly-skilled staff with expertise in managing a broad spectrum of special educational needs.  We also believe that ‘Learning for Life’ should apply to everyone, so we are a professional learning community who never stops learning how to improve.  Our vision is for every pupil (and staff member) to achieve their potential.  

Whilst we have amazing facilities at West Gate, what is even more impressive is our vibrant, welcoming, friendly ethos.  Please make an appointment to experience it first-hand.  We would be thrilled to show you around!
