Every School has its own traditions, its own ethos, its own identity, and its own purpose. The purpose of Westcliff High School for Boys (WHSB) is to provide an excellent education for our pupils, supporting them in their journey to adulthood by developing character and intellect within a happy and scholarly community.
To this end WHSB provides exceptional teaching and a wealth of extra-curricular activities to develop the Learner Profile attributes in our pupils through a unique education filled with exciting, challenging and enjoyable experiences.

Dear Parents, I write to advise you that the Government circulated updated advice on the re-opening of Secondary Schools on Monday 25 May 2020. That advice has now moved the planned date for the return of Year 10 and Lower Sixth pupils from 1 June to 15 June. Following this change, the School is now adapting its plans for Year 10 and the Lower Sixth, i.e. those outlined in my letter to parents dated 22 May 2020, and I shall write to you next week providing the updated details. Our revised plans will remain as close as possible to the original plan in my last letter, but will be adapted to ensure they fall within the Government's revised dates. Next week, the letter will be sent by Schoolcomms and posted on Facebook as usual. I can advise parents and pupils now that the revised start date for some Year 10 pupils will be Monday 15 June, and some Lower Sixth students will begin to return from Tuesday 16 June. In the meantime, I wish all pupils and parents an enjoyable weekend. Kind regards, Headmaster
