Head of Houses / Pastoral Care

Upon joining Westfield, all children are assigned to a house; Darwin, Einstein, Franklin or Galileo with each house captained by a dedicated, non teaching member of staff, the “Head of House”. Solely devoted to ensuring the health and wellbeing of their house, Head of House’s provide exceptional pastoral care and a go-to for students who wish to discuss any concerns, ideas or achievements.

Being part of a house builds a sense of belonging and family, with regular inter-house events of allowing students to experience a bit of healthy competitions and compete for further rewards and accolades.

Our wonderful students are the very heart of our academy. Ultimately they are the academy and we understand that happy students, who feel safe, appreciated and enjoy school, flourish.
