Welcome to West Lea School, an innovative school based over three campuses where everyone is valued and included – and where visitors always remark on the warm and welcoming family atmosphere.
Everything we do at West Lea is focussed on providing ‘Learning for Life’ for pupils aged 4-19 with special educational needs.
Our ethos is centred towards innovation, independence and inclusion. Placing great importance on personalised learning, our curriculum is built around literacy, communication, numeracy, ICT, independence, health, creativity and confidence. Our aim is to equip each pupil with a ‘suitcase’ of skills to help them progress on to further education and into the world of work.
Aspiring to serve our local community, we use our vast knowledge and expertise within special educational needs to help mainstream schools in the vicinity to offer interim respite to those who need it and a school place for the few who cannot cope within a mainstream setting.
With caring teachers and support staff, we offer a safe, secure learning environment and meet the daily pastoral and academic needs of all our pupils. With classes based over three campuses, each providing a distinct pathway to learning and development, we provide outstanding levels of encouragement and support.
West Lea School is all about innovation, and as such, we are constantly evolving! The only true way to see what we can offer is by coming to see us and discovering why we believe you should make ‘our’ school, ‘your’ school.
We have an open door policy and would love to meet you.
"Life for pupils at West Lea is a journey towards independence, this is only possible if there is a true synergy between our ethos and a parent's aspirations for their child. If this is for you, then come to West Lea and let's take this challenging step together."
