Official Opening Mon 22nd June
West Gate School is proud to announce we have now officially opened with the help of His Royal Highness The Earl Of Wessex and all our very special guests.
We had quite an amazing morning to be honest. I think the children were very excited about it. We have been doing quite a bit of preparation work about who was coming and talking about the new building.
It is the cherry on the top of the cake to have him come. He is such a knowledgeable man.
He met a lot of the children and was handed a thank-you card by one of the students.
I think everyone has felt what a special day it is and how lucky we are to have someone from the royal family come out. It puts the school on the map.
Virginia Ursell, Acting Head Teacher
West Gate is a great example of our Building Schools for the Future programme because it shows how innovative design can aid learning for all pupils, whatever their needs.
The wider community and local clubs also benefit from these great new facilities after school and at weekends.
