West House School
Our pupils achieve outstanding academic results and, just as importantly, grow into well-rounded individuals with excellent communication and problem-solving skills, who understand the benefits of a positive and empathetic approach to life. While preparation for Birmingham’s leading secondary schools lies at the heart of our academic approach, we teach pupils how to apply themselves, how to love what they do and how to deal with challenges. It is the fostering of these attributes that will allow them to thrive in the society of the middle part of the century and beyond.
