In Food Technology we learn how to be healthy and in PSHE we learn about how to have good mental health. We are encouraged to be reflective and responsible for ourselves and those around us.

Joe, Year 8

I really like the school’s focus on oracy because I feel like people don’t learn if they don’t give feedback to the teacher. Oracy gives us the power to form our own opinions.

Caitlin, Year 9

Teachers are fair and the ‘Springwest Expects’ policy helps students to regulate their behaviour.

Nikola, Year 8

Everyone is given an opportunity to excel.

Soraya, Year 9

There is a wide range of support for students, Heads of Years, Pastoral Mentors, teachers and tutors that can help you in any situation. There is always someone who will l look after you.

Samita, Year 9

The staff and students here are amazing. There is a really friendly atmosphere where staff and student wellbeing is the priority.

Teacher

I used to be a student at Springwest and now I work here. I love helping the students and building a rapport with our families. It is rewarding seeing students understand something they didn't.

Teacher

I would like to sincerely thank you for making the school library, it is a wonderful, magical place which my daughter loves and she uses it with pleasure.

Parent

I would like to pass on that Springwest has excelled in their support to the year 11 students. I cannot fault the provision given, the preparation and the dedication of your teaching staff. I am pleased that my younger son chose to join you in September last year and I look forward to seeing his journey in the coming years.

Parent

You dedicate so much time and effort into getting the best out of our children. You encourage and inspire them everyday. We really appreciate your hard work.

Parent

Coaching enabled me to develop my leadership skills with a group of teachers outside of my subject/faculty. This meant that I was exposed to different teaching strategies which in turn I believe has improved my own teaching practice. The coaching programme has really supported me to develop my teaching and it is an excellent opportunity for staff development at Springwest.

Teacher

Since becoming a middle leader, I have been part of the Springwest Leadership Development Programme. Being encouraged to engage with materials such as the Myers Briggs personality test has really supported me to understand why I make certain decisions, how I react in different scenarios and ultimately how I currently want to/ wish to lead.

Head of Department

My favourite thing about Springwest is the diversity, I love that each student or teacher is different in their own way and that the school encourages students to be their own person and to be confident in who they are, no matter their background, orientation or gender. | am proud to know that we are one of the schools that ensure that all students feel welcome.

Student Feedback

Thank you so much for such an amazing experience with First Give. I am really grateful to Ms Swandle for making it so fun for everyone. This is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. - Ameera Year 9

Ameera Year 9

We were very impressed with your students’ curiosity, maturity, and attitude to learning. I hope the students enjoyed themselves and got something from the day. We would love to come back in the future to work with your students again.
