INSPECTORS have praised Westholme School for having good’ and ‘excellent’ qualities.

The Blackburn school was reviewed by the Independent Schools Inspectorate.

Inspectors said that pupils’ personal development was excellent, that staff engaged pupils well and they noted the ‘high quality’ staff team was an asset of the school.

Principal, Lillian Croston said: “This is a really affirmative report for pupils, parents and staff. It clearly shows that we are fulfilling our stated aim: to ensure every pupil in our care realises to the full his or her own aptitudes, abilities and qualities.

“I was delighted to see how impressed the inspection team was with our relationships at all levels within Westholme and our strong academic performance, where all our pupils perform well above national standards.

“It demonstrates what we know here; when children are happy, they learn well.

“Encouragingly, there are several mentions of progress that the School has made since our last Inspection in 2007.

"We will take their further recommendations on board.”
