Welcome to William Westley Church of England
Primary School
We are proud of our school's history. Our school takes its name from the founder of Whittlesford’s first school – an 18th century businessman who set up a trust to help educate the young people.

I hope that our website will give you a flavour of our happy and successful school. We are located in an attractive, modern, purpose-built accommodation, set in extensive grounds close to the village green. 

We encourage all our pupils to achieve their full potential, both academically and creatively. Alongside this we offer a strong moral framework which helps them to grow as honest, caring and thoughtful people: people who are able to work and play with others, who are confident in their own abilities and who have respect for those around them. 

During our most recent Ofsted inspection in July 2019, the inspector was very impressed by the children’s strong sense of social responsibility and the report commented that ‘your kind, caring and happy pupils are a credit to the school and community.’ ‘Pupils’ behaviour is delightful. They are polite and friendly towards each other and the adults who work with them. They listen carefully in their lessons and try hard to do their best.

The leadership team has given considerable thought to how the curriculum can be both rich and broad. As a result, pupils experience many engaging activities that deepen their understanding of the world around them. Parents and carers appreciate the level of care and support that staff provide for their children. Parents warmly praise the school’s sense of community and the warm welcome they receive. The overwhelming majority know that their children are happy at William Westley and would recommend the school to another parent. (Ofsted 2019)
