Westcliff High School for Girls

Year 7

Parents of pupils allocated a place at Westcliff High School for Girls will receive a welcome pack from the school electronically at the start of the Summer Term.

Please note that our Year 7 Induction Day will be on Friday, 7th July 2023 and it is an expectation that all prospective pupils will attend.  Previously we advertised a two day induction, but on request of Southend City Council, this will now be just one day.  

Westcliff High School for Girls is unable to deal with queries relating to our waiting list for school places in Year 7 for September 2023.  Parents should contact the Local Authority where they live:

Admission appeals information is available by written request from the school.  The school will then reply to your request and send you a Notice of Appeal Form to complete.  The deadline for receipt of completed admission appeal documentation for Sept 2023 intake was Friday 31st March at 3.30pm.  Appeal Hearings were heard no later than Wednesday 14th June.
