Westfield School

Type Day

Age range 2–18

School head Mrs Marion Farndale


An independent day school for 400 girls, from junior to senior, Westfield is proud of its high academic standards and broad curriculum, but is equally renowned for its caring atmosphere. Respect and mutual trust are the foundations of life here and the school’s relative smallness means that girls don’t get lost in the cracks. The classes are small so that each girl can receive full attention, and be treated as an individual; there is no attempt to mould them into a pattern. This careful nurturing helps reinforce girls’ self-esteem, whatever their academic standard.
