We are delighted to be able to announce a new name and look for Witherslack Hall School.
Following an extensive consultation with both staff and students, the school’s new name will be Oversands School. The school is also unveiling a new logo ahead of the start of the academic year.

I feel my son has improved in all aspects since starting at Westmorland - emotionally, psychologically and educationally. I now have back the child I knew at age 5, who was happy, lively, inquisitive, confident and alive. I can't thank you enough for bringing this back when I thought it was gone forever.Parent of Westmorland School Pupil
My time at Pontville School and The Birches Children’s Home was the best of my life and I would thank all the staff for helping me. I was there for a few years and really enjoyed it. I was sad to leave and although I still miss it now, I have moved into supported living in my local area. I believe Pontville is the greatest school ever because the support I received was so good. The Birches and The Witherslack Group were so kind and supportive to me too.Bradley George Wilson, former student from Pontville School
