The Westerings Family

So many visitors to Westerings comment on the 'family feel' of our academy. From the pupils and parents, to staff and governors, we all work together to provide the best learning experience possible for our children.

Come and meet the family....!

Westerings is proud to employ more than 60 dedicated members of staff, each playing their part in providing an exceptional level of care and education for our pupils.
