Headteacher Welcome

Welcome to Westende Junior School!

On behalf of the children, staff and Local Advisors, I welcome you to Westende Junior School. We are a happy, inclusive and family orientated school with a strong community ethos within Wokingham.  

Our aim is to provide a nurturing, inclusive and inspiring learning environment which develops happy, confident children and ignites their passion for learning.  This ethos can be seen throughout the school, whether it’s in the children’s attitude to learning through our Growth Mindset, or through our extensive extra-curricular programme and broad variety of enriching educational trips and visits.   

Our staff are highly dedicated and will always go the extra mile to ensure that every child is valued, inspired and engaged. This is achieved through a creative and forward-thinking curriculum where we aim to inspire children and prepare them for the next stage in their lives. 

Standards at Westende are above the national average and we are proud of our pupils’ achievements. Sport and extra-curricular activities are a real strength and provide children with the opportunity to develop social skills and personal interests beyond the classroom.  

Visitors are warmly welcomed to come and see us when the school is open, or please take our virtual tour and email us with any questions. I would be delighted to meet you and share our wonderful school. 

Andrea Sykes, Headteacher
