 Dear Alumni

General Update from Mr Walker

We are still working hard to make sure that Westfield still feels like Westfield despite the restrictions and have managed to continue to run Big Sister/Little Sister activities outside around our new Forest School firepit – hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows at lunchtime are very popular!


Within school we have a one-way system in operation which, while inconvenient, helps us achieve our daily step count rather than taking the usual, shorter, routes. In Senior House, everyone has to wear masks in the corridors but thankfully, at the moment, not in the classrooms.

In case you haven’t seen it, I am sure you will love our latest video showing all the new developments at Westfield.

We are working on ideas for an event to bring everyone back together physically in the summer and we look forward to being able to celebrate the end of our 60th birthday year properly even if we have had to put celebrations on hold so far. One event that has taken place is the placing of our ‘blue’ plaque to celebrate the life of William Cochrane who built Oakfield House. Plaque News

The Lord Mayor of Newcastle and other dignitaries will be attending an unveiling ceremony during 2021 and it will be lovely to share our current successes with them then.


We are always pleased to hear from our “old girls” so please email Jane at with your news. If you are in touch with fellow old girls and you know they are not receiving emails from us, then please ask them to get in touch with Jane and she will add them to the database.

Kind regards
Neil Walker

A very merry Christmas from some of our younger girls!
