Dear Parents, Carers and prospective West Hill pupils,

My name is Matthew and I am proud to be the Head boy for 2021-22. This school is fantastic. West Hill has helped shape me into the best version of myself, it has done this through the support of the amazing teachers, through the bonds and friendships I have built with other pupils and through the incredible experiences and opportunities the school has afforded me. I know that there is everything here that you will need to feel at home and to be successful.

West Hill has been moulding boys into young men since 1927 and I am proud to say I am one of them. We have high standards and strong core values but, if you work hard, believe in yourself and are not afraid to fail, there is absolutely nothing you cannot achieve. Our Ethos “Ready, Respectful, Responsible” is the foundation of our school; the building blocks where we all start. You will have to make some important decisions while you are here, but teachers and other pupils will help you with your choices and support you along the way.

There is so much more to do here than just attending school. For example: you can join one of our many different sports teams, you can learn to play an instrument or join the school band. For the people who seek adventure, you can participate in the Duke of Edinburgh Award or explore the world on our international trips. There are also designated areas for anyone who needs a quiet place to do homework or some extra learning.

Everyone at the school plays their part. This is your time to take advantage of everything the school has to offer. If you “Aim High” West Hill will provide you with all the tools you need to be successful, but it is up to you to decide what you do with this. This is your journey to explore and venture into, it’s your time to invest in yourself and fulfil your potential.

I am sure you will enjoy your time at West Hill. These will be some of the best days of your life and will be one heck of a ride!
