“I think the school is good although there are some...”

Written on: 10/11/2010

I think the school is good although there are some draw backs. The rules are quite strict but they are there for a reason 9and to stop us looking like someone from St. Trinians!) It is a very good school for most subjects although I think they could improve their eco-friendlyness. Most subjects are exellent, especially Music and Science. I like the building, and now they have the new block it is very extended, although the toilets could be improved. i would have likes have know how scary the… Read Full Review

“You have ups and downs just as you would have...”

Written on: 25/10/2010

You have ups and downs just as you would have anywhere, but the friends you make here last. We work hard here, but we play hard too, the atmosphere around the school is friendly and fun, easygoing and relaxed, teachers are easy to get along with, to chat to and at times even banter with. The teachers are brilliant, respected and looked up to and we as pupils are given responsibility, privileges and repect from them. Hard work is rewarded and those struggling are given help. I couldnt have asked… Read Full Review

“The rules are so strict- too strict, and you are not...”

Written on: 16/10/2006 by yogyag (1 review written)

The rules are so strict- too strict, and you are not even allowed to wear shoes with coloured stitching on them, or dye your hair. It's ridiculous! Quite a few of the teachers are not very good, although there are a couple of really good ones. The bullying policy does not work. When I was bullied the teachers didn't do anything about it. It was only acknowledged that I was being bullied when a supply teacher reported it to the head of year, and even then nothing was done about it. The extra… Read Full Review

“The previous reviews don't seem to have given...”

Written on: 24/07/2006 by Apocalypticat (1 review written)

The previous reviews don't seem to have given Westcliff High School For Girls in Southend On Sea full justice. The last one about 'unwashed hair' is ridiculous and simply inaccurate, not to mention trivial. Plenty of girls wear make-up and do things to their hair; the rules are there to prevent people from looking like St Trinian's girls. However, another previous review about the school being somewhat oblivious to student's general well being does have a point. I was extremely unhappy in Year… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/03/2006 by flynn04 (1 review written)

Most of the girls wear no make up at Westcliff High School for girls. They have extremely long skirts, and do not wash and/or straighten their hair. This may be a seem a bit silly to include this, but it has to be said. Most people will look at us 'the students' and think of us as 'geeks'. It's quite depressing… Read Full Review

“I have just finished my last year at Westcliff. I...”

Written on: 21/06/2005 by young miss (1 review written)

I have just finished my last year at Westcliff. I attended right through from year 7 till the end of 6th form. I feel that I particularly enjoyed the 6th form, I would very much recommend it. The teachers I had were very friendly and professional. You felt you were treated on the whole as an adult. I was much involved in the extra curricular activities throughout years 7-11, and I thoroughly enjoyed them. The new head has given a breath of fresh air to the school. He really takes an interest in… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/01/2005 by soccerprincess (2 reviews written)

I attend the Westcliff High School for Girls school and I am very happy there. It has a great atmosphere and everyone is friendly. Teachers maybe try to dissuade students from taking certain subjects but this isn't really just so they do not show up badly on the league tables, it is because they want what's best for students and if they might not do so well in a subject they might not want to take it as a subject as it wouldn't benefit them so much… Read Full Review

“Westcliff High cares only about league tables. ”

Written on: 15/03/2004 by Pseudonyms (2 reviews written)

Westcliff High cares only about league tables.
It will force your daugters to drop a subject if they threaten to damage the league tables by not getting an A to C.
There is a very high emphasis on university, which is helpful if this is what your daughter wants.
There is also the "voluntary contribution" - if you cannot or decide not to pay it your daughter's name will be read out.
I hated my time there and was not alone.
In short, if your daughter does not need to be pressured to work and… Read Full Review

i totaly agree with you! the school is way too strict in terms of behaviour and education. I still suffer depresion from it! even if you chew gum or eat that will be an automatic after school detention and that is a bit out of order!!!

Written on: 09/12/2005

I agree as well!! I go there and all it cares about is exam results! It is meant to have an anti-bullying policy but it doesn't do anything - I was bullied earlier this year and the head of year didn't do anything apart from speaking to me telling me that it was the bully that was "in the wrong" - somehow I think I already knew that! As for the "voluntary contribution" well if you don't give money the first time you are asked for it -for whatever reason you are given fairly regular "reminders" that you have not contributed to this fund! I personally think that by being so strict they get more bad behaviour than they would if they were not so strict!
<br>
<br>ps. if you like hugging boys or even looking at them then DO NOT go to this school - it is quite literally illegal to even look at a boy at this school!

Written on: 07/08/2005

I totally agree with your review, i started there in 2000, and I have hated it ever since, the school only finds time for results that is all it cares about. It is not there to help the childrens needs and the students there are very unfriendly and has resulted to bullying, unfortunately I had to witness it. The school does not teach students to work together but to gain better results than your friends. The school is suited for students who do not enjoy having a happy, friendly time at school but for students who only are looking forward to becoming rocket scientists
