Students at The Westleigh School are delighted with their new learning facilities as the school continues to adapt to the unprecedented challenges faced this half term.
The Leigh-based secondary school, which is part of the Shaw Education Trust, continues to go from strength-to-strength following several recent refurbishments, despite the disruptions caused by the pandemic.
Principal of the school, Carlton Bramwell, explained: “We continuously strive for the highest-quality facilities that are modern, hygienic and safe for all our students.
“During the summer and lockdown periods, we took advantage of the quiet corridors and used this time to make incredible improvements around the school, including a top-of-the-range sports field.”
Facilities are continually being updated at the school and the investment in the future has been well received, with students regularly seen running around the new 3G UEFA standard pitch.
Although the school is unable to host their usual open evening for prospective students and their families, virtual and private tours have been made available to provide an insight into life as a member of the Westleigh family and showcase the new facilities.
Mr Bramwell added: “Since students returned, attendance has increased and the atmosphere throughout the classrooms and buildings is buzzing.
“All staff, students and their families have adapted to the modified school procedures and embraced new teaching methods with ease and dedication, including those learning from home. We are so proud of every single member of the Westleigh family.”
The school has numerous renovations planned for the near future. To keep up-to-date with the latest news from The Westleigh School, visit the website at www.thewestleighschool.co.uk or follow their social media: @thewestleighschool (Facebook) and @TheWestleighSch (Twitter).
