Principal's Welcome 

Westbridge Residential School is a co-educational school with a dynamic staff that are committed to making a difference to the young people in our care.

We provide 24 hour care, seven days a week on extensive rural grounds in Massey, West Auckland. We have a strong focus on using Restorative Practices as a way of supporting our students to make positive changes in behaviour. At the same time we also have the luxury of very small classes and high teacher to student ratios to ensure academic success.

After school hours students are cared for by our residential staff who provide afternoon programmes based on life skills, art, sport and social skills in particular.

Students are typically enrolled with us for between 12-18 months during which time their families and whanau are also supported to make positive change.

85% of students who leave us are able to successfully transition back to a mainstream school. We are committed to ensuring success for every student that is enrolled with us and continually reviewing our systems and programmes.

Please visit our Facebook page (click on the tab on the left) to gain a fuller understanding of our programmes and to see our students in action.

Thank you for your interest in Westbridge. Please contact me directly should you want more information on either our school or how to enrol. I would be delighted to talk to you.
