About Us

Westhaven School is a specialist school in Weston-super-Mare, a seaside town in North Somerset. Weston-super-Mare is a lovely area, however few realise that alongside the golden sands of the beach there are also large pockets of deprivation. Statistically, these areas are in the highest 2% for deprivation in the whole country. In a county of both great wealth and great poverty the school’s cohort is socially diverse. The pupil premium rate is 33% and at the same time we have pupils who are from the highest socially advantaged groups in society, coming from leafy well-heeled communities across North Somerset. Why? We cater for a specific group of pupils – those with significant barriers to learning, those who are on the spectrum of autism, are hypersensitive, are school phobic and increasingly those ‘with a multi-diagnosis’.
