Values and Vision
Westonbirt School aims to give every student an excellent education with high-quality teaching and a balanced curriculum. The school wants all the girls to have respect for themselves and be kind to others. The children are pushed to have personal development, as well as academic success. By working hard, they should achieve their goals. The girls should develop into independent adults who want to be life-long learners.
“Good teaching and an effective curriculum contribute to the girls’ achievement in all areas of school life. Assessment of the girls’ learning is generally good although the quality of marking is inconsistent in some areas. The excellent pastoral care enables the girls to develop in a safe and supportive environment. This is a happy school, in which the pupils are encouraged to become successful and confident, independent young adults. The girls at Westonbirt are articulate and confident, and show a considerable depth of maturity. Pupils develop confidence and independence, and express their enjoyment of life at the school and the way that their teachers help them to learn.”
