Westfield School Newcastle Upon Tyne
I had a great visit to a beautiful small day school called Westfield in the suburb of Gosforth. Our taxi driver found this one a little more difficult to locate but once there, it was the quintessential girls’ school, housed in a stunning old buildng, resplendent with a grand staircase and mosaic tiles on the floor. The girls were super, participating in the drama with great gusto and asking terrific questions. The snow really started coming down and by the time we went to leave, the whole place was a picture postcard of white. We were a little concerned about getting to the train on time but our taxi driver reassured us that this was a good time to be travelling and in about an hour, if the forecast rain arrived, the roads would be icy and dangerous.
Working with Kirstie and Kristine from Waterstone’s was great. I hope to link up again with them later in the year for the Clementine Rose tour.
