Welcome to Westbridge Residential School
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.
For Enrolment information choose ‘RSS Only Pathway’ or ‘IWS Pathway’ from the main menu. For both pathways a Regional Panel assess the suitability of a Residential placement prior to enrolment at the school.
Parents/Whanau are welcome to make an appointment to visit at anytime. Please contact the school directly if you would like more information.
