We believe that learning should be both rewarding and enjoyable for our pupils. If they want to learn then they are more likely to achieve their best. We recognize however that, as individuals, pupils may be better at some subjects than others. We have, therefore, designed a flexible timetable which gives each pupil the opportunity to be placed in the most suitable teaching class according to his ability in every subject.

Whilst the majority of pupils arrive at West Hill at the start of Year 7 we appreciate that pupils can join us at any time during their school life. Pupils joining us outside of the traditional September start in year 7 are entered onto an induction programme during their first few days with us. We believe this to be extremely beneficial in helping these new pupils settle into life at West Hill.
