Who We AreWestfield is a small, independent day school for 400 girls situated in the heart of Gosforth, a pleasant residential suburb of Newcastle upon Tyne with good access to public transport.
Girls are admitted to Westfield from age 3 and are guaranteed continuity of education up to 18. Our Junior House with its large, spacious grounds adjacent to Senior House provides excellent, self-contained accommodation for girls up to age 11. They benefit from sharing some of the facilities of Senior House, purpose built laboratories and ICT suite, dining room, tennis and netball courts to name but a few. The transfer to Senior House is a smooth one in familiar surroundings. The potentially difficult move from junior to secondary school is a seamless one at Westfield.
Choosing a single-sex education for your daughter is a very important consideration when selecting a school. In a single-sex environment, pupils have enormous freedom to discover what they enjoy and what they excel at, both academically and out of school. Growing and developing in an environment where they do not feel self-conscious allows them to take greater risks and grow in confidence. At Westfield, we like to ensure that girls have experience or working with others, both male and female. They are encouraged to join Round Square, Duke of Edinburgh's Award and become involved in community projects. Students from Newcastle School for Boys join Westfield Sixth Form pupils to share some curriculum subjects at A Level.
