Welcome to the Upper School

Mrs Sambrook, Head of Secondary Phase

I am extremely proud to be the Head of the Secondary Phase at The Westgate School. As a parent of two children who have been part of the Westgate community, I know from first-hand experience how The Westgate school supports and challenges its pupils to be the very best they can be. “Learning together; achieving excellence” is very much at the heart of the school’s ethos.

 

​As the Head of the Secondary Phase my role is to work with colleagues in school to ensure that there are no barriers to success for your child. This includes working with the Year Leaders and Tutors to ensure that there is excellent academic progress underpinned by strong attendance with a real focus on the holistic wellbeing of every pupil at the school. It also means working closely with teaching colleagues to ensure that your child’s learning experience is one of academic rigour balanced with curiosity, enjoyment and devoid of a fear of failure. 

 

At the Westgate we want to inspire confident, lifelong learners who are not afraid to try, fail and try again. Growth mindset is integral to all we do. The Westgate is an all through school and in my role I work closely with the Head of Primary Phase to ensure that the curriculum in the Upper school builds seamlessly upon the work in Lower school. “Learning together - achieving excellence” can only happen if we as a school work in partnership with you as parents in order to ensure the very best for your child. We welcome regular communication between home and school.

 

Please do contact us directly if you are at all concerned about your child and their progress with us.
