Westbrook Lane Primary School opened in April 1975. It is a single storey building standing in its own grounds and overlooking community playing fields. Behind the school is a path to local woods and also to Leeds Trinity University. Book drawn by childUnderpinning our school are our key values. These can be found in our mission statement by clicking here.

Westbrook Lane Primary School mission statement

In school there are seven class bases, a purpose built I.C.T. suite, three shared working areas, a resources room, nurture room, library, entrance hall and the school hall which is used for P.E., assemblies, lunches, concerts and P.T.A. events.

We also have a classroom at the back of school which houses the “Out of School Club” - a care scheme which operates before and after school and during school holidays.

We have a fenced infant playground with outdoor play facilities and a natural garden area for the children to work in. In addition, there is a large junior playground which has an activity trail, pavilion and stages for children to perform on as well as zones for ball play. We have recently completed our pond project and have now got a fantastic natural resource with dipping platforms for use throughout the curriculum. Please visit our pond project blog for more information at wlpspond.blogspot.co.uk. There are additional grassy areas around school surrounded by trees and shrubs and the occasional wild rabbit!

N.B. Westbrook Lane is a one-way traffic system and the school can only be approached by car via Brownberrie Lane.


Westbrook Lane is a Primary School for boys and girls aged 4-11. There are seven year groups with one class in each year. We have approximately 210 children on role. Our admission limit is 30 children per class in KS1 and KS2.

Although we have no nursery, we work in close partnership with Brownberrie Lane Pre-School who are situated across the field from our school.

Q. What is the school's admissions policy?

A. Leeds City Council is responsible for allocation of places to schools. When your child is due to start school you will receive a common preference form which you should either complete online or return to the school you have put as first preference. For further information visit the Leeds City Council website at www.leeds.gov.uk.

Legally children must start school by the first day of the term following their fifth birthday, but the Headteacher can accept children before this date if resources allow. At present we admit all the children who have had their 4th birthday, up to and including 31st August, at the start of the school year in September. Children who the staff and/or parents feel are not ready for full time school can attend on a part time basis up to the Christmas following their 4th birthday.
