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 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 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 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

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 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

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.
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
