International Links

Westways has been an accredited International School since 2008. This means that we are recognised by the British Council as a school which reaches a high standard of international activity.

Our International School Award was renewed in 2011 and 2014 and is valid until 2017. 

Ivey Ranch Elementary School in Oceanside, California, USA

This link began in 2007 when Richard Hallatt spent a year teaching in 5th grade at the school. As part of that teacher exchange, a teacher from Ivey Ranch, Karen Brown, spent a year teaching in Year 5 at Westways.


We also have competitions with them, such as basketball shoot-outs, 50 metre sprints, baseball throwing and sunflower growing.

Children in Y5 and Y6 continue to correspond with pen-pals in California.
