Westfield is a friendly, inclusive and highly ambitious school in the south-east of Sheffield, with direct links into the highest achieving Sixth Form in the city.
We are on the cusp of achieving great things. Over the last year leadership has been under Chorus Education Trust – an inclusive and aspirational local Trust that is drawing on the very best teaching and learning across South Yorkshire and Derbyshire. The school is due to formally join the Trust in the coming months. In the meantime, Westfield students have been given priority access to Silverdale Sixth Form, where students have consistently achieved some of the best results in the city.
With solid foundations in place, a new Headteacher, Mr J Birkbeck, is working with staff to ensure that the Trust’s ethos of ‘Outstanding Achievement for All’ is at the core of all work at Westfield. The school has a strong tradition of inclusion, whilst aspiring for the very best education, opportunities and results possible for all students. This is a school where, if you have the passion, talent and commitment, you can make great progress. It is a happy school with supportive and willing staff, students and parents.
Our students show leadership, drive and commitment. Many take part in the Sheffield Cutlers' Scheme, with placements in local businesses. Others are Sports Leaders, volunteering across Westfield's feeder schools at sporting events, acting as positive role models to younger children.
Westfield has excellent facilities, particularly for sport – with a sports centre, indoor swimming pool and gym. The school is an 11-16 comprehensive with over 1,000 students on roll, located in the south-eastern suburbs of Sheffield. It sits within the centre of its catchment area and enjoys excellent, modern facilities.
