Meet the Headmistress
Parents increasingly appreciate that a greenhouse, not a hothouse, is the optimum environment for children to flourish. At Westonbirt, we combine this with the passion and commitment from staff which fuels learning and holds the expectation, that each child will fulfil their potential and beyond.
This holistic approach to education is well supported by the abundant outdoor space for our breadth of co-curricular activities. A small school that proudly punches above its weight; Westonbirt pupils are regularly selected to play for county and national sports teams, drama students appear at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and over two-thirds of pupils play at least one musical instrument.
University preparation is fundamental, but a continued, individual approach to life even beyond our stunning surrounds, remains paramount. Individuality is celebrated and our pupils develop a level of confidence over time, which is neither arrogant nor taken for granted.
I look forward to welcoming you to the school and challenge you to look below the surface of this magical atmosphere.
