Kilgarth Secondary School

Ms Westlake, Kilgarth Headteacher and former winner of Pearson Teaching Award

I am delighted to introduce you to Kilgarth School.  We are an amazing community for young men with additional social, emotional and mental health needs.  Judged ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted in 2019,  we will work tirelessly to give your child an education that is second to none.


Our work is based on building excellent relationships.  Staff deal with situations using non-confrontational approaches so the working atmosphere is calmer.


Our reward based behavioural modification programme encourages responsibility.  It helps teach our students to make more positive choices and is based on cutting edge scientific research


The website will give you some information about what we offer but the best way to get a ‘feel’ for Kilgarth is to come and see for yourselves.

Jane Westlake, Head of School
