Open Night

Details: If your daughter will be Year 9 in 2019, this information evening is for both of you. We have two sessions -  both are identical in structure and content, so just choose the time that best suits you.

The session will begin with a speech by our Principal, Jane Stanley. You’ll then hear from several Heads of Department about the huge array of elective subjects on offer. Some of our current students will share their experiences of life at Westlake, and you’ll then have the opportunity to tour the school to see our amazing facilities and stunning grounds. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions of the teachers dotted around classrooms, science labs, sports facilities, dance, drama and music studios, and tech rooms. You’ll see our library, sports grounds and Admin Centre.

We’ll give you a goodie bag to take home so you can further discuss Westlake with your daughter. And then we will look forward to seeing you at our Enrolment Evenings later this year.
