About Our School
Westwoodside Church of England School was officially opened on its present site on Nethergate in May 1983, replacing the ‘old school’ on Akeferry Road nearby. There have been five Head Teachers at Westwoodside Church of England School on the site, Mrs Dunford being the first and Miss Richardson the current Head Teacher.
In September 2001 the school was enhanced with the opening of our Nursery for three and four year olds. We pride ourselves on being a school that is forward-thinking and creative in what we teach and how we teach it. We have seen the school go from strength to strength and strive to maintain that momentum. In September 2012 we converted to stand-alone Academy status.
