Research shows that boys do better in all-boys school. Academically, our students achieve at the highest level, consistently placing Westlake Boys among the top schools in the country for the number of scholarships attained. The majority of our graduates continue to study at tertiary level, with many going on to attend some of the most prestigious universities in the world. We cater for all abilities, providing the necessary support to ensure that students have the opportunity to achieve their potential.
We want our students to enjoy their learning, because we know that students will do better if they enjoy their work. Teachers at Westlake make lessons interesting and relevant, and they get to know their students well, and to understand how they learn best. Students are encouraged to think independently, to guide their own learning and to be courageous; challenging themselves to explore and be creative. We aim for our students to leave Westlake with the curiosity of a life-long learner.
If students need extra support with their learning, we have an excellent Learning Centre who will work alongside and help them to set and achieve goals. If students have a particular strength in any area, we will extend and challenge them through our academic extension pathways. Our excellent ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) teachers will support learners who need to increase their confidence with English or provide extra help if needed to improve their skills.
