I was very impressed West House boys School their enthusiasm for art work and their enthusiasm to help me clean the room 10/10. Art teacher Miss Moore is also so brilliant with them that it all adds to a great day.

West House School was founded in 1895 as a day and boarding prep school for boys. Termly boarding ended in the mid-1960s and weekly boarding in the early 1990s; the school is now Birmingham’s only preparatory day school exclusively for boys.

At the end of the 1990s, parental demand for selective secondary schooling from the age of 11, rather than 13, led to the phasing out of Years 7 and 8 and the emergence of the school as a leading private primary school.

In 1999 the opportunity arose to amalgamate with a well-established local private nursery school and West House Co-educational Day Nursery was opened. This has since evolved to become the Early Years Department of the school and provides an outstanding environment for both boys and girls from the age of one.

While West House School stands on its original site, the facilities have been developed extensively over the years. In 1982, a well-equipped sports hall was added to the site and in 2013 this was developed further to include state-of-the-art theatrical features. Renamed Duce Hall after Headmaster Kim Duce (1974 – 2004), it now hosts a number of productions throughout the year, in addition to everyday sports activities.


Emily, Cloe and Jazzmine.

We have had a brilliant week at Compton and Verney and we cannot thank the staff enough for their friendliness and willingness to take time to answer any of our questions or provide us with information.

All the staff we were with had a great rapport with the children and from our perspective, provided the children with such a postive learning experience filled with enthusiasm and knowledge. The variety of resources you had particularly stood out to us.

Thank you for allowing us to join the team and for letting us see such a range of workshops/activities. We have gained so much more of a deeper understanding of the importance of learning outside of the classroom.
