School Developments

Weston Green School has developed significantly over the years in order to ensure we continue to offer the very best learning experience for all our pupils.

In planning for the future, we are mindful to ensure three things:

- All development is designed to enhance the children’s experience and provision
- Every child achieves as highly as they can across the curriculum
- We maintain the ethos and school atmosphere that we cherish

The timeline below showcases some of the key developments in recent years. Scroll through our timeline to follow our story and keep up to date with our latest developments.
