The Perfect Balance 

West House prides itself on providing a balanced approach to educating and developing your child in preparation for life in the middle and latter part of the century. Education is about so much more than academic achievement. Of course, our boys work hard, aim high and achieve outstanding academic standards; but they’re also given a wealth of exciting developmental opportunities in music, drama, art, sport and citizenship so they can discover what they love for themselves.

Because we care

One visit will show you everything you need to know about how your child will be treated in their time at the school - with care and support; that’s what we are renowned for. We know that to get the best out of a child, both in terms of learning and their personal development, they need to feel supported, listened to and secure; and they need to enjoy learning. That’s exactly what we do for our boys in helping them develop into confident and articulate individuals.
