Private School in Edgbaston

Introduction to West House

We’re renowned for our unique family atmosphere and for successfully striking the perfect balance between strong academic focus and providing an incredibly nurturing environment, in which our children thrive.

Our pupils achieve outstanding academic results and, just as importantly, grow into well-rounded individuals with excellent communication and problem-solving skills, who understand the benefits of a positive and empathetic approach to life. While preparation for Birmingham’s leading secondary schools lies at the heart of our academic approach, we teach pupils how to apply themselves, how to love what they do and how to deal with challenges. It is the fostering of these attributes that will allow them to thrive in the society of the middle part of the century and beyond.

All of this is made possible by our dedicated teaching staff who focus on the needs and abilities of all individuals, our small class sizes, and our extensive extra-curricular programme which every child chooses to get involved in.

Visitors to the school are impressed with the behaviour, positivity and confidence of our pupils, something that was noted in our last inspection report. We welcome prospective parents into the school to experience our unique approach and atmosphere for themselves.
