Providing infinite opportunities

Our Academy

A message from our Principal

Westlands is a school for students who have Social, Emotional and Behavoural Difficulties. Our site is in Thornaby which is located at the southern end of the Borough of Stockton-on-Tees. Along with our other Trust Academy Green Gates, we are the only schools in the Borough that cater exclusively for young people with SEMHD and have a special and important place within the community.  The wider range of partnerships that we have developed all have a very positive impact on the school and its students.

There are many exciting opportunities for students of all ages at Westlands . In addition to our core curriculum we offer a range of therapeutic, sport, craft , horticultural and workshop activities . We also offer an array of GCSE and vocational qualifications which students can attain throughout KS4. Our students are at the centre of everything we do and we aim to give every one of them who joins our school an exciting and engaging fresh start in education.

I hope that you enjoy browsing through our website, I am sure that you will find that the way in which it is constructed will provide you with new insights into the school and what we do. I would welcome the opportunity to meet you, so please come and visit us. Just call the office on the number on our contact page and make an appointment.

Yours sincerely

Pete Ewart
