What the school says...

West House is a non-denominational
school, guided by Christian principles. It
is divided into three departments - Prep
(Years 3-6), Pre-Prep (Years 1 & 2) and the
Early Years Foundation Stage (Nursery -
With five acres of beautiful grounds,
less than two miles from Birmingham
city centre, the school lies at the heart
of a thriving community. It is surrounded
by many outstanding cultural and
recreational facilities. These enrich the
lives of all pupils and complement a broad
and balanced curriculum through which
boys explore and extend their talents in
sport, music and performing arts.
The school continues to boast a unique
family atmosphere of which founding
Headmaster, Arthur Perrott Cary Field,
would have been proud. However, in the
spirit of combining the best of its traditions
with an education that prepares pupils for
life in the middle part of the 21st century, it
remains determined to be at the forefront
of innovation.
Employing 45 full-time and part-time
academic staff, West House has grown
considerably during the last five years to
accommodate approximately 310 pupils -
130 of whom attend the EYFS Department.
Pupils are prepared for a wide range
of senior schools and standards at 11+ are
consistently high, with most Year 6 boys
transferring to local grammar schools,
King Edward’s School, Birmingham and
Solihull School.
